The drive up is very impressive, as the trees are decorated with white lights and the resort is immense! We found check in to be hassle free, and quickly made for our room, as we had been flying all day. Holy long hallways! Ask for a room closer to the elevators if you have to be anywhere soon! This is terrible to say, because I am a hotel geek, but I do not remember the room! It made no impression on me, so I am to believe it was a standard business fare room, without any major faults or assets. We weren't super excited about it, and we tend to get hyped up when its our first visit somewhere--yeah, I told you, geeks.
On to the good stuff--
The hotel is definitely convention-y and the huge lounge was packed with revelers, whom we thoroughly enjoyed, as we were partaking ourselves. The bar has many top shelf offerings and we never wanted for a drink. We were meeting a friend here ( a local ) who had never been before and he commented on how nice the bar area was. We had a great time and good service too.
This was--you guessed it--a Hotwire bargain at $65/ night/ I have spent far more for far less. If you are in town for a short visit, it is a decent place to stay, and I imagine Hotwire usually has super low rates, judging by the sheer number of rooms.
Overall, 4 out of 5. Good amenities, nothing stand out, nothing offensive.
