There seems to be a real split in reviews for this hotel? It may be that some of the rooms are being/ have been done up? Our room was on floor 4 - right next to a small swimming pool with a water fall into it. The noise echoing down the cold war bunker concrete corridors was loud. The room... More

The room itself was okay. It seems a little run down, but it is clean! The beds were comfortable and water pressure was good. The view was amazing from the balcony! Staff was friendly and helpful with directions. Location, location, location! This place is in the middle of many shopping areas and some great food.

I felt so at home in this hotel. The staff made me feel like I was a part of the family even before I arrived. At check in I was greeted with a smile and a nice cold bottle of water, and a very fast process to get my room. The room was very nice. You can't expect perfection from... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night before joining a cruise. Lobby was nice and modern but very deceiving as the rest of the hotel is in badly need of a complete overhaul. From the time we stepped off the elevator it seemed like we were in another world. The carpet was old and moldy. Hallway was creepy and... More

Our family experience at this hotel was very disappointing. The hotel is very dated and in poor condition. The bathroom looked dirty and was very out dated. Location did not make up for the accommodations.

We booked the hotel on the recommendation of our friend who was traveling on the trip with us for a convention we were attending. After checking reviews, I was apprehensive, thinking maybe we should change our booking. I was really glad I did not! We arrived from the airport too early (9am) for check-in, and our luggage was stored for... More

We stayed for about a little over a week after booking in 12 hours. We were welcomed by friendly staff. Everyone was quite pleasant - from front desk, security, vallet, concierge, and eventually we met one of the managers, Keola. He took the time to help us with directions, our late check out due to late flight that day and... More

I read all the negative reviews about Gateway, yet I made the decision to book with the any way. I too had problems with one price being on the website and another when I registered. However, after speaking to two different people the rate was changed. The lobby is nice, but the 5th floor was ok. This is an older... More

We stayed for 6 days with the kitchenette room. The hotel is kinda old specially the washroom. All the receptionist are not friendly. They don't even smile for our 6 dyas stay there. Their pool is too small for a $10per day resort fee. The car vallet price is $24.99 per day. Tip is not included. But the vallet drivers... More
