This is a mediocre hotel; don't expect Hyatt standards. The staff were not very friendly and they became annoyed when we decided to park on the street (for free) instead of paying the extortionate hotel parking fee. Wi-fi was not also free; this was the only hotel we stayed during our California road trip that charged for wi-fi access. We were given a room quite far from the main building despite the hotel appearing to be half-empty. The view we had from our room was literally of a big extractor fan; not impressed at all. The room was generally clean and modern but there was just not enough natural light. Finally, the toilet didn't have a washbasin; we had to come out of the toilet in order to wash our hands (use a washbasin by the room's entrance hall). Finally, this hotel is not located very close to the city centre; be prepared to drive for 5 mins or so.
