I booked this hotel using last minute travel and got a room for around $155. Turns out it was a good thing I booked so far in advance as they had two events going on the the night we were there.
We arrived around 3 and were asked to come back b/c our room was not available. There were no upgrades available either because the hotel was pretty full. We came back around 4:15 and they have us a room on the 14 floor. Later that night, the "Make a Wish Foundation" was having a benefit in the lobby and I literally walked passed Wayne Newton and said hello.
I had stayed here back in 2006 and fondly remembered how it was the most comfortable bed I had ever been in. My how things have changed. While my stay was still enjoyable, the comfort level was not "wow" like it was years ago. The bed was no where near as comfortable as it was years ago. I did like the electric blinds...although not when they decided to open by themselves at 7 AM :-). The shower was VERY nice, however.
The location of this hotel is great for cruisers.
