We arrived and upgraded to a corner suite on the 8th floor for a very reasonable price. The front desk staff could not be nicer, and the room was lovely. It was larger than my first apartment. The jetted tub worked great and the party shower was very roomy. The bar area came in handy as we entertained some family friends who live in the area. Real glasses and coffee cups would have been nice though.
Our first night, we ate at Cabo, and were very pleased with the price and portions. A pitcher of cadillac margarita was 1/2 price at $14.50 and the chicken fajitas were only $8.99. I hate it when portions are huge and you either overeat or waste a lot of food. This was just the right amount. Service was very good and we liked the salsa bar.
Our second night, we ate at Cucina Pasta and again it was extremely reasonable with normal sized portions. Our server was a delight.
We ate breakfast at the Station Cafe and the tip is to get the value breakfast at $3.99. Two eggs, toast, hashbrowns (although the menu did not list the hashbrowns, they came with it), and two pieces of bacon for that price. My husband ordered the All American Sausage for $3. more and the only difference was he got 4 sausage links and an extra egg. I guess if you are a big eater, that is good, but I'm not. The food was just fine and the service was snappy fast.
Our third night, we ate at Sonoma Cellar and while the service was impeccable, you have to watch out for the upsell. There are 4 or 5 fixed priced dinners, but if you order anything outside of that, you are charged for almost everything a la carte and they will not tell you unless you ask. I don't like to have to ask as it makes me feel cheap, but I will because I don't want to feel like a chump. This is the only reason I did not give the hotel 5 stars.
We used the fitness center each day - it is small, but adequately equipped. We only used the pool one day due to the weather, but we would have enjoyed it more if the weather had cooperated. The wireless internet was okay, but occasionally glitchy.
The bar with the stained glass in the center (Gaudi Bar?) was our favorite as the bartenders were very friendly and there was a lot to watch. Service was always fast and efficient.
Rosalitas Cantina did not have good service and we ended up leaving after waiting for more than 15 minutes to be served at the counter. It is in the front and only had one bartender who also had to service the barmaids for the gambling floor.
This was the second time we have stayed at the Sunset Station and we enjoyed this trip even more that our last 3 years ago.
