The Hotel was very clean, the bed, I did not want to get out of, very comfortable and with lots of pillows, room was very clean, staff respected your need for privacy, staff were courteous, always pleasant, smiling, and greeting you, and willing to assist you at all times. I viewed the exercise area and it was doable, the pool was just okay, although I was expecting more for the climate in the area. The Champions restaurant can really use some help with their menu offerings. The hotel is joined together with Marriott and Champions serves both which in my opinion does not serve well for either of them. It tells me that they don't want you to eat their, in the hotel, but want you to go out and eat somewhere else. The food in Champions is nothing to talk about, it's just okay bar food! The first night I went into the bar for a drink the bartender was less than friendly and helpful and I was short on patience that day from classes, so I decided on nothing and left. Interesting enough, 2 days later I was there to have dinner and the same person waited on me at the tables. He was slightly more pleasant this time and I made sure I got exactly what I wanted to drink and eat, even if he had to work a little harder for it. I was kind and I tipped him well, but I wanted him to remember too.
