My husband and I are stayed there back in 2001 and to our surprise it was undergoing a major renovation (we had to ask and we were informed that it was taking an "Extreme Makeover" of 25 Million!!!!) - we were absolutely impressed and breat taken by this... My husband made the reservations and was informed of the out of order areas, but they offered alternatives if we didn't wish to stay due to the renovation. That didn't bother us since we were out for a getaway on a Wed-Fri, for 129 a night that beats the Sonesta and the Wyndham. The valet was very well suited and there was a greeter that took us to the registration area. They offered a complementary continental breakfast, and as we were checking into the hotel they told us about the DAILY Complementary Wine Hour (not cheap wine either!). Complimentary WiFi but did have difficulty with it at first and they had someone come up to assist (operator error)... Needless to say, there is no lobby, restaurant, lounge, spa or pool. If your looking for all these this - I don't recommend it at least until October. I was really impressed that the staff was so curteous amidst the conditions they had to function in. The check in was remote on their Indoor/Outdoor terrace - the agent was nice but offering water but the concierge also offered wine NICE TOUCH!
When we got to the room, my husband mentioned that we were getting away from the kids and the Jacuzzi was turned on for us when we went in it, the water made us sweat too much so we didn't use it for long. Some of the walls were still bland without any picture frames but the Plasma tv in the suite was a nice touch! We immediately called down to advise of the missing items so they wouldn't think that we took them, and they accommodated us by letting us know that it is due to the timing of the renovation, things are still coming in and since they are still running the hotel it makes it difficult to hang things up and decorate as if they were closed it would go much faster.
We asked about the noise and they responded that it is not high energy like South Beach but you definitely have nice spots- Wet Willies, Fat Tuesday with the frozen drinks - Great for this summer... Went for dinner at The Knife (AWESOME) you get complimentary wine bottle or 2 beers with dinner and it is served like a Brazilian Rodizio but with an Argentinean Flair- That was great!!! Kudos to them! Lots of shops and boutiques, the atmosphere there compared to the last time we stayed is completely inviting and enjoyable. The following night they were sold out and stayed at the Ritz Carlton around the corner. Not bad, definitely paid too much for a small room. Nice pool area, but seemed understaffed and those who waited on us were not service kind, sort of on the frustration level :(. For now, if you don't mind having a few amenties and all your going to the area for is to relax at night and go out during the day - there is no bother.
I definitely recommend a return getaway, but they need to get this place going already! Definite potential for my corporate and social events! I got a picture of the middle of the hotel which is a gorgeous atrium -
