This was my second stay at this hotel, the first being about 10 years ago -- and little has changed. The rooms are quite nice, and the views great if you are on the east side. Unfortunately this trip my room was on the south side directly opposite the condos next door...can you say Rear Window?
Front desk staff were very helpful and efficient. Servers in the bar were not. I arrived late on a Friday night and ordered off the bar menu, there were maybe 4 or 5 other customers. The two bartenders working that night favored chatting with each other over serving customers, almost to the point of being unprofessional (telling stories, laughing). My order was delivered only after I reminded them to go look for it. Then I had to ask for flatware. And beg for a second drink.
Spa/fitness center were very nice, although you had to pay to use the facilities. The fitness room is nothing extraordinary, but the locker rooms/sauna/steam room was very cool. Pool was closed.
In general, this is a modern upscale hotel with good location and views. Service can be spotty. Everything is expensive.
