I stayed here for 3 nights in late April while traveling on business. My stay was mostly positive on the whole, here are my specific comments:
Check-in: This was fairly smooth as I checked in on a Tuesday morning so there was no line. However, my room was not yet ready but they said they would call me when it was (this was at about 11 am, so I understood). However, I didn't get a call back until nearly 5pm! This was very frustrating as I had work to do and nowhere to do it - I ended up on a couch outside some of the conference rooms trying to have a conference call but it was not the best experience.
Rooms: They were HUGE, very nicely appointed with a sitting area, kitchenette, dressing area, desk space, enormous bathroom and bedroom. Great design, with real art on the walls (not industrial crap you usually see in hotels). There are a few different configurations of room, but the ones I saw all have the bathroom (tub and shower specifically) somewhat exposed to the bedroom area - something to think about if you are planning on sharing a room with someone you are not intimately familiar with! I enjoyed the oversized shower and large soaking tub though. Great L'occitane bath products too. Beds were super comfy, lots of pillows and a nice duvet. Strangely enough for a room of this size, there was only 1 phone by the bed, and no phone on the desk which I found odd. Another strange thing was that the closet had a TON of space to hang clothes, but no drawers to put everything else.
Food: lots of great restaurant options on site. I had an amazing meal at STK, and very good ones at Comme Ca and the casual Italian place next door to Scarpetta (I forget the name). I had wanted to eat at Scarpetta but couldn't get reservations. I ate at the Wicked Spoon buffet every morning for breakfast and I thought the food was very good, especially for a buffet, and priced fairly (I believe it was $17?). I did try to order room service on 2 occasions and both times there was a 1hour+ wait so I gave up and went to the buffet. I also ate some late night pizza at the "secret pizza place".
I'm not a big gambler so I didn't try out the casino, but I walked through here a few times on my way to various destinations and was pleasantly surprised at the ventilation - cigarette smoke bothers me and they seemed to do an excellent job of filtering it out.
Pools: I spent time at the regular pool by the spa as well as the "dayclub" Marquee pool - the dayclub is definitely a "scene" if you are into that sort of thing, I am not but was there to entertain clients. Since that pool is more of a club the focus is on drinks and bottle service, not as much on food or non-alcoholic beverages - for example I ordered an iced tea only to be told about 30 minutes later (service was a bit blase) that they only had hot green tea (??) and were out of basically every other non-alcoholic drink on the menu except water. Gee, thanks. The regular pool was fine though, if a bit windy as it's fairly high up.
Check-out: this was a bit of an ordeal as I was leaving at noon on a Friday, so the place was swarming with arrivals. The lines they had set up were not very orderly - my guess is that the management doesn't want traditional lines mucking up the way the lobby looks (which is very cool, by the way), but the result is lots of confusion and it's unclear what desks are for concierge vs. check in/check out.
When I was there the hotel had only been open a few months, and many of the rooms are still being finished, so I think that contributed to some of the issues above. I think with time they will work out many of the kinks and I would certainly stay here again!
Also... very few hotels give free wi-fi like this one does. Wondering how long it will last!
