We arrived late on a Friday night. When we entered the lobby, there was quite a celebration of some sort taking place in the bar. People had spilled over into the travel portion of the lobby. A minor inconvienence. It looked like a reunion or wedding group, they were well behaved.
Once we got to our deluxe room, we discovered it was large, very clean, and comfortable, overlooking the pool area. The only disappointment to this was the small bathroom. Judging from the floor tile size, the bathroom measured 7' x 8'. This included the walk-in shower! Due to the size constraints, some of the fixtures are placed in odd locations. We had to wedge a face towel into the sliding glass door because it kept rolling open during showers. One of the room phones was not working. This was reported to the front desk. The complimentary continental breakfast bar was very good. There is an upgraded hot breakfast bar for $5.00 that was excellent.
