Avoid this spa as they don't care to inform the clients about the changes in locations or hours of your appointments. I have booked an appointment for a facial treatment one month in advance and when I get there to have my treatment I realized that they moved away from the old location, but nobody informed me about the change....

Was assured everything was ok, no hint that there was a possibility of cancellation, was told access to the building was as usual. Came home from work at midnight to a... More

it's a good location close to my hotel. but frankly speaking it's too commercial and you don't feel welcome, i didn't feel relaxed, u can feel they are only there for the money, focused more on sales than customer experience. And there is politics between the spa employees and they bring it up in front of the clients. They push... More

Terrible customer service leaving me without time to book somewhere else. They originally rebooked me 45 minutes later which I accommodated only to send me a note 30 minutes later to cancel.

I had an Arizona La Stone therapy massage done with Christine. She used warm stones to massage my body. I've never felt more relaxed! She got rid of any tension/knots I had with deep heat, using a special technique that worked like magic. Christine was very sweet, professional and made me feel comfortable the entire time. I have already recommended... More

I have gone in for treatments to this spa a few times and was satisfied with the result of the treatment however not the overall experience. Hope this experience helps if you are trying to decide where to go... By far the best treatments I have had at Holtz were their facials - from signature to regular - and I... More

It's only been a day and I want to go back to spend the day. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing. I strongly recommend the Hot Stone Massage at anytime of the Year, the RMT's are very good, friendly and ensure that you have a relaxing time.
