Stayed for a long weekend over the summer (july 2014)...
ok 1st the good.. great service, nice location close to gaslanp, parking in very good for being downtown (32/night), close to the trolly.
now the not so good... biggest problem, When you book a room, the price should include what you are going to have to pay for your stay... So the 15.00/night required charge for the slow WIFI which free at say Holiday Inn, newspaper which I never read nor needed, and there is no ice machine, you need to call for someone to bring you a bucket. And pool hours are only until 10pm.
Overall a nice stay, close to places to eat and easy access. But hotels should be required to state required charges or include them in they total room cost so you can make a informed decision on overall cost. If plan on parking, add a 50.00/night to you cost and you will have a real per night cost.
I have stayed at the HIlton, Westin downtown and would rate this as on par with this locations.
