Once you get past parking...this is a gorgeous hotel! The lobby and bar area are modernly furnished and the staff was very friendly, helpful and professional! The rooms were luxurious (we were in 2721) and the western view of the city was AMAZING!
I was not happy at first to park across the street in the next block, but that turned out to not be so bad. They have a whole system to handle it and if you follow it you really only have to "check in" your car and then "check out" when you actually leave no matter how many days you stay.
The other downside was no free wi-fi in the room, but the staff informed me that was normal because they want a community atmosphere in the lobby bar...and boy do they get it! You can get free wi-fi in that area and on the second floor promenade area, so it's not impossible, just an inconvenience if you actually had to do any work. Turns out my party of 12 just enjoyed the bar area at the end of every day when we returned from our activities. We would stay there for hours just talking and recapping, so I think I get it now!
Great hotel...and its a bit above my price range, but YOLO!
