We booked a room as part of a deal that comes with a $50 dinner voucher and entry to the evening entertainment in the 'top of the ark'. The room was comfortable and so was the bed.
Dinner was very nice, we tried the vegetarian entrees followed up with a crispy margarita pizza.
At one point we noticed a strong cigarette smoke smell emanating from the bathroom vent - perhaps somebody outside was smoking near the intake so we notified reception when we went down shortly after and the man at the desk immediately attended to this. Despite the hotel being covered in 'no smoking' signs, people were still smoking at the fire exit so the whole floor reeked.
It was a bit noisy with people playing loud music at one point but we heard management ask them to turn it down so if you're wanting a quiet night's sleep when there's live entertainment, bring earplugs as it seems some people like to party in their rooms beforehand.
In all, I think the staff did really well and we had a great time ourselves!
