I'm staying in the hotel right now. I'd rather be asleep than posting this review, but I can't because this hotel thinks it's a good idea to have a club on site. The club plays very loud music on Thursdays and Fridays between 9pm and midnight. Not recommended for the business traveler.
I called the front desk to ask how long the noise would be going on, and to their credit, the manager called me back and offered me a different room. The downside to this offer was the room is in a different building. I'd rather not pack up my room and move to a new building at 10pm the night before an important business meeting.
Sadly, if it weren't for the club, I would rate this hotel pretty well. The room is descent for the price. The bed is a little hard, but within acceptable ranges of hotel rooms. There are three restaurants on the premise. The sushi bar is especially good. The interior courtyard has a rather fetching 2 story water fall with live fish swimming in streams throughout the main floor.
