    Staff is uniformly nice. Rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed. Restaurant has varied menu - everything we had was both well prepared and nicely presented. Pool area is spacious and well maintained. Free Wi-Fi. Overall, style without the officiousness of some high end lodging.

    The style of the hotel is a nice mix of Native Indian and Latin-American. The room was nice and airy. The swimming pool was nicely decorated and relaxed. The dinner was a highlight - the best on our 3 weeks trip in the USA

    @ajeepgirl80 - Downtown is approximately 10-15 mins away. Uber and Lyft are heavily used, and can be very helpful when parking is at a premium due to special events.
