This place is definitely a hidden gem. DON'T believe ANY of the negative reviews. You will miss out on a wonderful place! The rooms are outstanding, beautiful newly remodeled decor, better that the resorts that charge 4 times as much. Full kitchen with NEW full size appliances, hardwood floors, lovely and comfortable living room furniture, double balcony (upstairs over the courtyard is quieter), bathroom was more modern than I've seen in any luxury hotel! Staff couldn't of been nicer or more accomodating. Didn't have a blender in my room that I had previously requested, after asking at the front desk, I had a BRAND NEW blender in my room within a half hour! I can't say enough about how great this place is, the pools are fabulous, both heated, the smaller one is heated a bit more and is perfect for nighttime swimming, and the pools are open 24 hours! There is an abundant amount of free parking and 3 large grocery stores are in walking distance. Lot's of shops and restaurants within walking distance with the El Paseo shopping center just a couple of blocks away, but I do recommend having a car. All the rooms have different decor and upon peeking into several of them, they are all equally fabulous! I have worked in the travel industry for 25+ years and have stayed at all levels of properties, and I don't give out compliments randomly. This hotel is an excellent value and a lovely place to stay.

It was so wonderful having the two of you stay with us. I know this was your first time staying at the International and we look forward to having you back soon. The suite you were in was recently remodeled and I encouraged by all the feedback we have been getting. By the way next time I will make sure we have that blender for you!
