I will start my review on a positive note...location-fantastic, mint tea-great. Did I mention that the location was great? I thought I was staying in Barcelona, but my PTSD said I was trapped in a Vegas hotel. We had cigarette smoke enter our room >85% of our stay through the A/C unit. This made having a good night's rest a challenge. At least we had windows that actually worked. I was also disturbed by the practice of turning our key into the front desk every time you leave the hotel. No one and I do mean no one, ever asked us for ID to verify if we were the current occupants of the room. I'm just saying...we weren't in Kansas anymore. The only saving grace for this hotel...LOCATION!!
