We stayed for 3 nights. We requested a room on an upper floor several months prior to our stay and were given a room on the 5th floor, which is actually the 10th floor since lower floors are used for parking. We were told that floors 6 through 11 were already full, which caused some confusion since my Spanish was about as limited as the staff's English. The hotel itself is clean, modern, and attractive. The room, which had a king bed, was sufficiently large and had a roomy bathroom with a large walk-in shower. There could have been better lighting in the bathroom at the sink. The bed was extremely comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. The breakfast area is very pleasant and had fresh pastries and fruit, but the hot items weren't very good or fresh. We were told that breakfast starts at 6:30am, which we were delighted to hear because one morning we needed to head out early for a tour, but when we got to the breakfast area about 6:45 the lights were still out. When the lights were turned on a few minutes later the hot items were placed in warming containers that were not yet turned on and these food items - eggs, meat, oatmeal, were cold (until the containers were turned on). One morning I noticed two juice glasses that were chipped (and potentially could have cut someone's lip). The coffee, however, was very good. There was one small bottle of water in the room upon arrival. When we didn't get another bottle the second day, we were told it might take some time to provide it until more staff arrived, and we never were provided with the water that day so we went down the block in the evening to buy a bottle from the store. Despite the above complaints, I really liked this hotel because it was a very good value, was in a good location with many restaurants nearby, and had a very clean, modern atmosphere. I think this hotel could be even better if there were a little more attention to detail by the staff.
