Recent stay was specifically for a shopping trip - mall with great choice of stores right right opposite. The staff at this hotel clearly have the right customer service training, friendly, professional and welcoming - they really try their best. I had gone a bit overboard with Amazon ordering (over 30 packages delivered to the hotel !!). That was no problem at all - no charge, safely stored, delivered to the room immediately, all with good humour. Shulas is a good steakhouse, on the expensive side though - themed on football, which they place on the table - it distracts to the dining experince rather than adds - also not sure I like a grubby ball next to me when eating.
Bar staff knowledgable and pleasant. Rooms are adequate for what you pay, toiletries replaced and good quality. Room cleaning service good, am a late riser but was never hassled by overly keen cleaners trying to get in to the room. Airport shuttle service a bonus, pleasant driver. The one thing that really lets this hotel down is the rooftop pool area - it needs major improvement, a rethink on the size of the pool and perhaps a roof top bar / snack area. All in all a great stay and I would go back there.
