This is a newer facility that has missed the mark in several areas. With a waterpark it's a great family destination. With a waterpark it's a poor business destination. You couldn't escape the water. You'll find it even outside of the waterpark in the hallways, elevators, restrooms, etc. You'll also find bits and pieces of trash and food in the hallways, elevators, restrooms, etc. The rooms lack sound proofing. Between the Sumo wrestlers above me and herd of elephants in the hallways my stay was not restful. The very small restaurant and bar were drab and nondescript as was the food (& no free continental breakfast). The meeting facilities are amongst the hotel rooms and the elephant herds will disrupt your meeting. And pack lightly because it's a longer than usual hike from the parking lot to the lobby (no automatic opening lobby doors). Strange for a newer design hotel. From a business perspective bypass this HI. For a family fun fest, have at it. I think the great hotel staff is misplaced and belongs at a better hotel.
