I spent 5 nights at the Topnotch with my girlfriend and all I can say is that I agree with most other reviewers' comments that it's overpriced for what you get. Upon checking in, I asked for a room on the quiet side of the floor, away from the elevators. The clerk behind the desk told me upgrade me to a slightly larger room but when we got upstairs, it was right by the elevators! Sure enough, early each morning there were small children running and yelling in the halls.
The views from the hotel grounds were magnificent. The adult pool was tiny however, and the outdoor jacuzzi water was cold. Also, there are a limited number of umbrellas in the pool area so one exceptionally hot day, we had to go to the indoor pool to avoid the sun as all the umbrellas were taken.
Food at Norma's was also good but way overpriced. With tip, one day we spent almost $70 on breakfast! (this include 4 lattes at $6 each - even more than Starbuck's!).
We did use the span and although pricey, we did enjoy ourselves.
All in all, a decent place but certainly not worth what they charge.
