First of all, I utilized the Travelzoo package. This is the second time I have used it and for what you get, it is a fantastic deal. Two nights lodging in new tower, drinks, bottle of wine, massages, if you use it all, it is fantastic (even if you don't its still a good deal).
The travelzoo rooms go quick so I called the hotel to check availability before I purchased. You need to bring the voucher but checkin was no problem and even with a long line it only took about 15 minutes. All guests have to wear plastic bracelts, kind of annoying but since it is for safety I didn't mind. They were very nice at the front desk and spoke perfect English.
The room: They only have one king bed and are a suite with a "living room". I don't like soft beds so my friend slept on the bed and I folded out the couch to sleep on, it was hard but I didn't mind. There is a fridge, microwave and stovetop (for what!?!) along with a little sink in the kitchen. I asked for a room high up and we got the 15th floor facing the pier, the balcony's are huge and the views are beautiful. Note: ask at the front desk for a table and chairs for balcony, not all have them. Bathroom has see trough wall but shower and toilet are private with smoked glass. Very modern features. You will want to bring ice, there are no ice machines.
Here was the downer of the room, it stunk. There was a signifant sewer smell coming from the HVAC vent. When I called the front desk they sent up housekeeping who agreed that it was bad but handed me a bottle of lysol. We didn't move rooms because they were so busy we didn't want to waste the time, after the 1st night I wish we had moved. It was pretty bad.
We did not have dinner at the hotel, we went down the street to Susanna's and it was AWESOME (seperate review on that)! drinks were watered down and not great so we ventured out in the strip. I will say the breakfast was fantastic, especially the Shrimp Omellette.
All-in-all, for the price I paid and given it is Rosarito I didn't think it was awful and would still go back... if the room wasn't smelly!
