This is my third stay and I have been impressed every time. No, there is no free breakfast, which is slightly inconvenient but they do have an okay restaurant on premises. 3 quick fixes would make this place perfect. 1. Train the bartenders how to make mixed drinks-they are all really friendly and professional, just not well trained. Buy a mixed drinks book so they can look things up! 2. Open the fitness center 24/7, many hotels are doing that now and it is extremely helpful! 3. Extend the pool hours (and turn the pool heat up just a bit). When a pool opens at 8am and closes at 10pm, there is not much swimming time for business people! I love it when hotel pool hours are 5am-midnight! Great location and I would recommend this hotel!
