I went for an overnight trip yesterday with a friend who bought the deal on Livingsocial.com The deal was valid on Friday night, which is good because most AC deals are only good on Sun- Thurs. So this was a plus. Check in was at 4pm and we checked in closer to 5pm. The deal included a $15 credit for food at the on-site restaurant (Teplinzky's) and 2 passes to the Solarium (we did not get to take advantage of either).
Upon arrival we checked out the spa, which was closing in 5 minutes (5pm) because they had no more customers for the day, but the Solarium and fitness center would be open until 7pm. Just to the credit of the hotel, the hours listed for both the spa and solarium that they are open until 7pm, but the "Hours may change depending upon Hotel Occupancy." So not to occupied since they were closing at 5pm. The solarium was nice and the outside heated pool looked very inviting. maybe I will get to try both if I stay again in the future.
The coffee shop was empty, surprising for a Friday night, but it is only open Friday-Sundays (until 11pm on Fri & Sat & 2pm on Sun). However, when we returned to the hotel at little after 10pm the restaurant was already closed - good thing we decided to eat at a restaurant in one of the casinos).
We stayed in the Annex part of the hotel, which was OK. With the neon lights in the hallway it looked like a low budget motel, but I guess that part of the retro theme the hotel has. We had a balcony with a view of the motels and inns across the street on Pacific Avenue. If you plan on being out of your room enjoying AC more that you plan on being the room, then the Annex is the place for you. If you are not at all concerned for bells and whistles and looking for a clean place to stay with good cable channels and free wifi, then this will be right up your alley. It worked out for me because it was only for one night and it was clean (other than the bug we found in the tub in the morning).
If I can't get a comp room from one of the casinos, I may give this hotel another try with a room in the tower.
