Spent 3 nights here for onsite conference. Location is great and is a short drive from some good dining places. Was able to check in really early but ended up with a room in the South tower with the outside room doors. I hate these ones because you can never leave your window blinds open, unless you like people walking by a show! Also there were a lot of the bugs that come out this time of year, so at night you had to shoo them off door before rushing into your room. The bugs are harmless but i don't want them in the room.
Rooms are OK, but bathtub has seen better days. Could only get a small amount of the water diverted to the shower head and rest went to the tub section. Great for rinsing for your feet! Room was equipped with a separate dehumidifier unit and when both A/C and it were working it was too loud to watch TV or sleep. I usually crank up A/C while out of the room and then shut it down for the night. This worked here and room stayed cool enough for the night that I could sleep with both units off.
Breakfast buffet is very small and basic, but eating on the ocean facing deck makes up for the quantity of choices.
Gym is basic as well and only has free weights for strength training.
First time I experienced a line up for the men's facilities. We were a big group filling up the main room and on breaks we found that the number of bathrooms is limited. I now appreciate what my wife goes through at most public events!!
