    Our room didn't have aircon, but it had a ceiling fan and a portable cooler unit. However given it was a cool time of year this was suffice.

    You can drive up to the front of the hotel at check-in, so no need to walk a long distance at all. The current construction appears to just be the convention part only, we didn't see any other construction going on.
