RoomI was in a special allergy-free room on the Club Level, but didn't really notice the "allergy-free-ness" of it (though others might). It was a very standard room otherwise. The king bed was very comfortable, and the desk had an abundance of power outlets (my two key requirements when traveling for business). The bathroom was a little dated, but very serviceable. Despite being an airport location, I had a nice view of a golf course (which I believe was the only greenery in the immediate vicinity).

FoodThe hotel restaurant is called The Rickenbacker, and I thought it was very respectable. In the morning, the breakfast buffet was ample and tasty (breakfast meats, eggs, potatoes, fresh fruits, yogurt, cereals, omelette station). I also ate there once for lunch, and enjoyed the club sandwich that I ordered. Service was fast and friendly.
PointsI was on a paid stay, but this hotel is a Starwood Category 2 - meaning rooms are available for 4000 points per night (3000 on weekends).
MiscellaneousThe hotel is directly outside the airport - I believe it is closer than any other hotel in the area. They offer a complimentary shuttle to/from the terminal that runs every ~15 minutes.
The Club Lounge is very modern and spacious. I can't speak to the club breakfast (at check in, the front desk agent encouraged me to dine at the restaurant rather than the club), but it was great to be able to grab a snack, coffee, and water in the middle of the day.
The fitness room is bright and spacious. and has approximately a dozen assorted cardio machines, maybe half a dozen strength-training machines, and a full rack of free weights.
This hotel participates in Starwood's Green Choice program, so I was able to get 500 bonus points for declining maid service for 1 of the 2 days of my stay (you're not allowed to decline on the day of your departure).
