Actually writing this in the room, I cannot believe some of the coments about the place.
None of the staff have been snobby to us yet we wander around the hotel in shorts and t shirts, the pool does hit shade at noon, and hits full sun again at 3 for a while but the pool terrace and garden get sun most of the afternoon. The room is plenty large enough for us and we got an upgrade for being a PC card holder - the first night was a free night!
Drinks are what you would expect, everything else is just good value. A hotel seamstress adjusted some clothes for me and asked me if five dollars would be ok? Hell no, if it isn't worth ten it isn't worth doing!
I had 3 packages delivered to the hotel, one of them 3 weeks before we arrived (my mistake) and when we got here, the receptionist told us as soon as we booked in, seriously, the staff are just so helpful, the conscierge has a flyer and a map for everything in the area.
Hard rock cafe and bayside market are 5 minutes walk away, walk into downtown and theres the free monorail as well as walgreens, ross and other conveniences as well as some electronics stores and a few cafe's.
Really enjoying the stay
