The other reviews describing recent improvements and upgrades were right on--our room had new furnishings, the lobby looked like it had been recently overhauled, and even small details (like the adjustable shower-head) showed a dedicated effort to bring this hotel up to current standards. The beds and pillows were surprisingly comfortable. The staff at the front desk were very helpful during check-in and every time we went through the lobby the various desk workers were friendly and attentive.
The real reason we stayed at this hotel is the pool. Our kids (7 and 5) love to swim and the slides and water features made this hotel stand out from the others. We visited the pool four times in three days. As one reviewer noted, the pool area is loud. With the water features turned on the splashing water does indeed make a ruckus. (Then again, I wouldn't visit an indoor hotel pool expecting peace and tranquility.) The entire pool is shallow (3' at its deepest) so it is certainly meant for smaller kids. My wife and I had no trouble crouching in the pool to play with the kids and the hot tub was nice for us, too.More
