We would definitely recommend or...
Pros: The beds were so comfy!! And the pillows, too!!
Cons: I would have preferred not to valet or not to be charged extra . It should have been included since we didn't have a choice to use valet or not

Enjoyable
Pros: Great pool Friendly staff overall Nice room
Cons: Their point system is misleading. Printed on their promotional voucher, it states that we can use it towards any goods, including alcohol, on hotel property. My husband ordered me a glass of wine in celebration of our wedding anniversary & handed the voucher to the bartender. The bartender looked at the voucher & then looked at my husband & told him that the voucher could not be used for alcohol. Really?!

Fantastic location! Modern design! Very...
Pros: Excellent modern accommodations. Friendly staff. Comfortable and clean rooms. Centrally located to areas of interest.
Cons: The parking situation. The price should include guest parking. Parking cost extra via valet. There were virtually no hotel parking spots apart from valet.
