This hotel is in an amazing location allowing you to walk to shops and restaurants. I chose this hotel because it was relatively new. The front desk staff were all very accommodating and helpful. I stayed in the king suite, which had a separate living area with its own television. The room had two small balconies with two chairs and a small coffee table. This room had a regular shower and not the see through glass kind that some of the other rooms have. The housekeeping staff had the room cleaned early each morning and you do have to activate the 'please make room' button from inside the suite. The swimming pool is small and was often crowded so if you are looking to lounge around the pool this may not be the place for you.
The hotel does not have a restaurant, but they do serve coffee and muffins in the lobby each morning and drinks poolside in the afternoon. The Blue Taco restaurant downstairs was great. If you are dining in ask for a table outside. I did a take out and had to wait as they were packed and turning people away telling them it would be an hour wait for them to be seated. The chicken quesadilla is delicious and served with a huge portion of tortilla chips, salsa and guacamole.
