I suppose this is a great place IF you're in your 20's and have a job interview the next day at Oracle or Adobe..... (like the techie generation and gender that it's clearly trying to attract) but, if you're over that age, this is not the place to enjoy a nice weekend getaway. The saltwater pool which is supposedly a "green" idea is indeed chlorinated - not as green as the name implies. The highlight of this hotel is the bar - like the rest of the reviewers here point out. A place to meet and greet over ETOH. If you forgot the KY and trojans, they are openly available for sale in the "needs" case and in full view of young adolescents.
Simply put, do not take children here. This is a place for young male techies to either immerse themselves in their room and play X Box, OR, eat boxed sandwiches and Stouffer's side dishes (microwaveable and included at the food "court") or play pool -either the saltwater or billiards type, better known as "pool" in the USA.
The room sink is made for one person and only one is available per room. We had to remove the drain to get the water to actually "drain" as water was intended to do. The beds are very uncomfortable and not really intended for sleeping on (see 1st paragraph last 2 lines). The shower is nice but getting in is tricky without freezing or being boiled. Good luck with that!
And finally, don't look for any instructions on how to find the ice machine, order room service or fire escape routes. Don't expect to find out what's on TV - no guide except the channel names already on the TV are provided. Don't expect to find ANY paper products in the room, except the obligatory toilet paper that's more like onion skin.
