1. The hotel staff was very polite and professional, especially the front desk staff. My elderly father was not feeling well after a morning outing, and I can't imagine the hotel staff being more helpful about it.
2. The complimentary breakfast was great, and Margarita (the attendant) was a delight to talk to.
3. The hotel is located in a fantastic area, with a large movie complex and a huge number of restaurants and shops within walking distance.
The hotel has been open less than two months, and the new carpet smell is still fairly strong... not really much of a con but it was the only thing I could think of.
