Check in for 2 nights was routine. We reserved the highest category room: king bed with fireplace on the top floor. We were assigned room 318 which is an end unit with one door which is solid, whereas all the other rooms have both front and back doors with glass in the back, terrace-facing door. Upon entering the room I was floored by how dark and dungeon-like it was, and small! Not at all like the photos on the website! The fireplace is sandwiched between the bed and a desk, with 2 upholstered chairs and a tiny table squeezed between it and the door. If I were to stay at this hotel again, I would not pay the significant price adder for the fireplace. The room is so small that after about 20 minutes of fireplace use, the room gets up to about 85, even on a 50 degree night with the AC running, so we had to turn it off .There is one narrow fixed window next to the door. We are on an extended driving trip in AZ, and so we have two rolling 28" suitcases and two rolling carryons. Finding places to stow all our stuff had me quite flustered for awhile. After a couple of hours I got used to it, and found that it works out OK. The bathroom is nice, there is a good sized flat screen TV, fridge (which froze our water and soda but thank goodness my husband's insulin was on a middle shelf and it didn't freeze), and a microwave. Our room is in the west-facing wing, where none of the rooms have a view of the red rocks, except from our north-facing corner little window. The east-facing rooms have a view of a wider swatch of red rock formations. The shared terraces are wide and have tables and chairs. The pool and hot tub, which we didn't use, have a very small paved area around them with just a few chaises and chairs. Next to it is the breakfast room, which is too small for the number of guests who are trying to dine simultaneously. The breakfast offerings are varied and well-presented. There are two computers and printers in the lobby for guest use. The front desk was very helpful in suggesting restaurants and providing directions to the vortex sites and hiking trails. There is a shuttle to town which we didn't use; we drove into town around 3:30 pm and had no trouble find a parking spot on the street. This hotel is supposed to be non-smoking but that apparently does not apply to the terraces. We were enjoying a beverage at a table on the terrace when a man came out, left his door open with his TV blasting, and lit up a cigarette 10 feet from us. I guess there are inconsiderate louts anywhere; we found it really annoying and left. Pets are permitted in designated rooms with a $20 fee, but we observed a family which parked its vehicle just below our room and kept two large barking dogs out there until we asked them if they planned to let the dogs bark all night, at which time they took them to their room. The hotel has a $250 fee for unreported dogs, but I suspect that that the rule goes unenforced. Sunset on our second night was breathtaking, both from our west-facing terrace, and from the east side which has a wonderful view of the red rocks reflecting the light of the sinking sun.
