2 adults. 5 nights. Rate: $140 + $17 in taxes, per night. Business (with time for pleasure) trip.
The staff was very good. The bellhop/shuttle guys and the front desk guy (Alex?) consistently exceeded expectations.
The hotel was clean and attractive both inside and out.
The room was clean (except shower walls) and comfortable.
The pool and workout facilities are small but nice.
Overall, the breakfast was good and a very nice perk, but the food wasn't great. The atrium area is kept clean and attractive.
A Cuban sandwich with fries from the on site restaurant was tasty and large enough to split for a late/light dinner.
The lack of water pressure in the shower.
The shower walls were dirty. (Everything else was clean)
The ice machine on our floor (8th) wasn't working, and showed all the signs of being permanently out of order.
Comment on noise:
Noise from the atrium is an issue in the front room of the suite, NOT in the bedroom.
Don't blame obnoxious guests on the hotel:
We had one bad night due to a couple in the next room having an unending, screaming fight, late at night. Eventually, I called the front desk. It took a long while, but they did send security (or were they cops) who took care of the problem.
