Excellent breakfast at the bistro!! THE BEST. The breakfast scrambler comes out perfect. (Eggs, Sausage, Potatoes, and toast) The eggs do not taste like the microwaved hotel eggs.. that you sometimes get. The sausage patties came out crispy on the outside.. and soft on the inside. The potatoes.. were seasoned just right.. and there were some pieces that were crispy .. some that were soft.
Their fruit and yogurt parfait was okay. I liked that too.
As for the hotel... I LOVE the new design. It is NIIIICEEEEE. The lobby .. makes you feel like you're staying at some sort of DELUXE spa. Or some kind of island retreat. At night.. it seems like you're in some kind of an empty club.
There's also a cool... super huge touch screen TV near the lobby. And, the guest computer center is located near there.. in an open air area. 4 computers... unlimited printing.
But.. if you don't want to use the hotel computers.. you're able to use your own.. in the lobby area.. there's wifi there as well. There are plenty of seating located all over.. and they are all very comfortable and welcoming.
There is also an indoor pool and jacuzzi. The hotel staff are all very friendly.
Did I sell you yet?!? And this is all downstairs.. we haven't even touched on what goes on upstairs yet!!
So the rooms. They are okay. There are also flat screen TV's in every room. Plenty of towels to go around. HUUUUuGgGGeee bed. I could probably roll around four times to get from one end of the bed to the other. My only complaint.. was that the water does not run as strong. (I was on the 2nd floor). Another thing was the temperature control. 74 was too cold and 75 was too hot. Also, I think some parts of the mattress of my bed had that wet clothes smell.
Would I come back here? OF course!!
