The location is great close to many restaurants, tourist services, and shopping.
I stayed in one of the newly available deluxe rooms in the 1st floor that have only been completed in the past few months (or so), normally a bit more expensive were were upgraded at no additional charge. The room were fairly averaged sized (smaller than the older rooms) but everything is very new fro the bed, to the cabinets, to the large LCD TV.
The hotel has an elevator (Many don't - worth checking!) on the first floor it was not a big deal but climbing up 3,4 or 5 storeys worth of stairs to get to my room after a long day out in the hot sun, is not for me!
They have free wifi in the lobby, as well as a small internet cafe (free) just around to corner from the front desk. One downside is for wifi use in you room you have to pay. At $5 for 10 hours it is not much however being a more expensive hotel you would think that would be included.
One complaint I had was with the maids. Noe don't get me wrong, they did a fantastic job on the room and were very friendly nice ladies, however they seem to leave their walkie-talkies on the cart (with the volume up very high) outside another room while they cleaned it... The things goes off frequently and I was woken up not once but TWICE on two different mornings.
For a hotel the most important pillar service is rest/sleep, needlessly waking a guest be it at 7am, 10am, 2pm or 5pm is something to be avoided, especially as simply taking the walkie-talkie in the empty room your cleaning and turning the darn volume down (now it does not need to be so loud as it is not 10 feet away from the user) would solve the problem.
If not for this issue would have been Excellent across the board. Would I stay again, you bet! Would I recommend to my friends, family family and associates, absolutely.
