This is hotel could have been a solid value in a great location. The amenities are good and the bed was very comfortable. However the room size and fixtures keep this property in the very good but not great category.
Like many other reviewers, I think they should rethink their resort fee ($25 after taxes) policy. If you can't opt out of it, it is simply an surcharge on your room rate. I read a response from hotel management that this fee is still less than the total of two ala carte use fees, but it is not less than a per use fee if you don't use a service. It is like an airline charging a baggage fee even if you don't check a bag.
I would have felt much better with the actual (honest) rate up front. Maybe it is human nature, but now I feel ripped off.
