I stayed here for three nights recently in April on a business trip.
The hotel is right off the street on a main road. It's okay. I don't understand all the rave reviews. Maybe my expectations were too high.
For these prices I felt the hotel was sub-par, that is everything was almost there. For instance, check in was a great experience. The staff was very friendly and polite. The room I had was the sub-par part. I had room #234. It overlooks some huge ventilation system, not pretty at all. The room is also somewhat ornate or some might say over the top with its decor, but then again, that's just me. The whole hotel for that matter felt old/dated/antiquated. I am not hip, young, etc. but this place felt very stodgy and old fashioned.
And does anybody really use the cd player in the room!? Who travels with cds any longer? A I-pod docking station would have been a nice touch.
Mini bar in the room had limited options. I had the one small bottle of red wine which I drank and it was never replenished during my stay. Odd because at $18 for that tiny bottle one would think that would be refilled on a daily basis.
The hotel itself is also kind of weird. It's an odd layout, no real flow to it. No lobby to speak of really, you check in there and then leave, no lobby bar, gift shop, fountains, etc. The pool was extremely small and crowded each day I was there and one overworked waiter was trying to keep up with all the drink and food orders.
I didn't go to the spa which apparently, according to most reviews, is a reason to come here.
I had no car and there really isn't anything within walking distance to go to. There is a nearby Starbucks and 7-11.
Also, on a side note, just a pet peeve of mine, I don't like hotels that have slamming doors. People just let their doors slam shut morning, noon and night here.
All in all, not terrible but not great. If you like an old fashioned feel, over the top ornate decorations and like to play cds in your room this is the place for you.
