Wife booked a surprise overnight here. Room was awesome. Jacuzzi tub filled up quick and ran perfectly. Bathroom was huge and very nice. Bed was comfortable. Only complaint was that we couldn't rent an in room movie. Not sure if that was operator error or something they don't offer. But it was a great stay.
