What a great place in a fabulous location, walking distance to great shops, restaurants and pier.
Staff were vey friendly and helpful on checking in and organising a driver for our day at universal. We stayed in a one bed room suite as travelling with 2 teenagers. The room was spacious and modern, fully equipped kitchen and huge bathroom with spa bath and shower. The pool area looked very decadent with curtained cabanas and fluffy towels. We didn't go to the rooftop bar for happy hour because we weren't allowed to take our boys who are 15 & 17 because they are under age which was disappointing because I am sure they would have loved the view and the hotel missed out on our custom.
I really liked the room, bed was great, nice to have a kitchen to make breakfast, they even had a toaster which is unheard of in usa rooms! The one downside was for $400 a night they could have supplied coffee and some uht milk in the room so I didn't have to go to maccas in the morning to get my coffee! On our last day on checking out, I did notice free coffee was provided near the entrance to the restaurant..but nobody told me that. Another thing, I had a prepaid voucher and we didn't use a thing from the mini bar, on checkout I was told everything was fine, no charges, but on returning home have noticed a $7.67 debit on my card, a small amount I know, probably not worth chasing, but I suspect we have been charged for something we did not take from mini bar. That is frustrating...
