Business oriented Marriott Renaissance hotel, attached to a mall with 250+ stores and restaurants. Large square outdoor sitting area (off the lobby) is great with no mosquitos able to get into the area, surrounded eight stories high by the rooms / meeting areas with a centerpiece large fountain - brought down a little in the atmosphere by it also being a smoking area. Nice touch of having iced water with lemon and mint available self serve in the lobby. Small store with beverages and travel items. Larger than normal bathrooms, and good sized sleeping rooms. HDNet movies and HBO family were a highlight surprise. Pool is about half an olympic length, but was not well heated - way too cold for our swim - seating for about 25 people and all enclosed with high walls so no one outside the hotel could see in - very private. Hot tub and exercise area were top notch, with a nice touch of water and apples and disposable earphones in the exercise area. We were not Club member-eligible, but did step in and check it out - looked nice with liquor and beer available, and a nice selection of foods - I'd spring for it again. The nights we were there the hotel was packed with business meetings. Parking is outside in numbered spots next to the Nieman Marcus mall store. Restaurants and bars (Cheesecake Factory, Champps, Bar Louie, CPK, etc.) were short walk away and is a local hot spot - at least 40 restaurants in a small area. Small bar right off the lobby. Pelagia from poking our head in seemed to be a fancy italian avant-garde / new-wave restaurant but we did not visit.
