Since my last review of this property in 2009, it's seem they've improved the quality of the room; well appointed and clean. The parking garage for the Hotel is a bit difficult to find but it's free and the check-in was quick and courteous. If there's a complaint, it's really the aesthetics of the room view; right across from an office building full of sad sack white collar workers in their cubicles. It's rather depressing but one simply closes the curtains and tries to imagine oneself on beach front property. Room service was pricey but excellent and check-out was a breeze. There's a shopping mall right next door but the ambience of the Hotel is all-business and hard to recommend for those with fun in mind.
