This hotel is not as flash as they try to market it as (or charge for!), in fact the only thing that it has going for it is it's geographical location to the strip.
The Hotel has only 2 rooms with balcony's and these are the top priced suites, the other rooms don't even have opening windows. There is the constant twang of moldy aircon in the air and various noises from restaurant fans that must pass by nearby walls.
If I was to come to this area again I would maybe book into one of the hacienda style hotels a few doors down that look a lot more worth the money, or failing that rent a house in the nearby playacar and taxi in (2 mins).
The rooms are in disrepair, one of the suites I was in had cheap laminate repaired with even cheaper mastic.
To top off my bad experience of this hotel, they have some noddy system with towels and towel cards, I brought my own and used this for the whole duration of my holiday but still got charged £25 for a towel I didn't use once because of the stupid "system".
Poor quality rooms, Poor value for money, Poor holiday experience.
