Pool was incredible with a swim up bar. Heated pool. Enough choice on places to eat and food was good. The rooms were comfy with a great view. Nothing overly luxurious but had everything we needed and we liked it. Service was great. Highly recommend.

I love this hotel - we like "Club 10" located on the 10th floor - adults only and yummy snacks right off the elevator. The restaurants are fabulous and the pool is amazing! A HUGE shout out to Kyle and Justin on the car valet team - always there to assist and took very special care of our car. Also,...

I wasn't pleased with my stay here at all. The room accommodations weren't what I expected considering it's 300 a night. Once arriving at the room we requested another robe 3 different times that never arrived. The heating system wasn't working so our room was filled with maintenance guys and ladders. The decor was horrible. The chairs were badly used...
