This hotel has rooms next to a gross swampy area of which they tried to put me in. When I requested a room in an area on the property that did not have fouls odors I was told they could upgrade me to a courtyard room at additional fees.
When I pointed out to the rude women at the front desk about the horrible odors she just said too bad and we can't control the swamp odors.
When I I had pointed out to this careless person who has no business being in hospitality, that on my printed confirmation I indeed reserved a courtyard room was when she then gave me the room which I was entitled anyways. So really what this hotel did was take money for the courtyard room but tried to put me in a lower grade room which stunk to high heaven.
The courtyard area was 100 times better with no swampy gross smells.
The water views are good, the pools were decent too and the room clean.
Hotel in a good travel location for business.
