I stayed here for a conference and we got an excellent rate--somewhere around $80. I heard they're trying to attract large conferences and so I don't think I would have gotten this rate on my own. It's gone through a gorgeous remodel, but I felt a bit like an uncomfortable production crew member on "The O.C." given all the gorgeous people wandering around the pool--very intimidating.
My room had a view of--gasp!--more hotel towers and a touch of beach. Not bad but considering I wasn't there for the view, okay. The business and other amenities were decent but nothing to write home about. They really pushed the spa to me (need to pay for its renovations???), but the prices were outrageous--about double what I would pay back home. Forget it.
Huge, gorgeous bathroom. But here's my one big complaint and caution...I was in the bathroom and had locked the hotel room door. Housekeeping knocked on the front door and even though I yelled at them to come back, they didn't hear me. So they came in and then (was it the running water?) came straight into the bathroom--because guess what? There are no locks on the sliding bathroom doors!!! It bugged me but oh well. I guess I should have put the extra physical lock on the front door, but a lock on the bathroom door would have kept housekeeping out if they'd had it.
The mall is about a 1/4 mile away (or less) and there are plenty of places to eat if you don't want to pay the high hotel prices.
So I would stay here again on a business discount, but probably won't come back for fun.
