I have to say the views from outside of this hotel are spectacular!! I booked this hotel because my granddaughter and friend had a lot of shopping to do before leaving on a cruise. I was under the impression that the hotel was connected to the mall but that was not the case. My concern was for them being on a street by themselves but it is in a safe area and they did manage to do a LOT of shopping in 2 days and make it back to the hotel fine.
During my stay the bedroom lamp did not work. I moved the living room lamp in and left a note for housekeeping but the bedroom lamp or bulb was not changed.
The pool bar closes way too early! People were enjoying their drinks and the beautiful views when last call was given at 6 or 7pm. Because it was a Friday and Saturday and nice out I thought it could have remained open a little later. Bartender was new and spoke broken English. Every time I ordered a Cosmopolitan he had to go get someone to help him!
On the morning we left toilet stopped flushing.
When the bill arrived noticed that I had been charged 2 nights parking even though I had booked a room that included parking. The front desk woman took care of that immediately although when I reported the lamp and toilet issue she did not seem concerned at all. Her comment was "OK"
I don't think I would stay here again. There are many nice hotels to stay at for less money. The value of what I paid for what I received did not seem to match for me.
