This hovered between 3 & 4 stars until I went and looked at the other hotels to see where I should stay next time. And the Outrigger is the place to be. It's the best spot on the Bay, with the best beach and beach amenities. The lobby is pretty and vibrant, live music at night, even early in the week. The rooms were nice and perfectly clean, but very very dated. Even the beds weren't the latest standard, but they worked. This place clearly caters to Asian tourists; I didn't see any Americans here, only at the Marriott & the Westin. But the breakfast was good and you just can't beat the proximity to the shopping - the best is right there at Pleasure Island! I saw a few reviews that said staff wasn't great, but I would give them 5 stars - everyone was extremely pleasant and worked hard to provide a good experience. Am looking forward to when the new hotel next door is completed - it'll be nice to have something crisp and new to try.
