On Friday August 23, my wife and I and two teenage children stayed at this hotel. It is a nice big city big name hotel. It has a grand lobby and its own waterfall.
Our room was nicely appointed and had a little extra room, but was largely a typical American hotel room with two queen beds. The bathroom and shower were very nice, but fairly ordinary.
The hotel had a large outdoor pool in the shape of a half moon. It was wide enough for serious lap swimming and had three lanes set up. There was ample room for recreational swimming too and a small area by the steps suitable for children (but, requiring extreme vigilance by parents as it drops off steeply past the rope). Adjacent to the pool is a sports and fitness club including an indoor hot tub, showers, lockers, fitness machines and access to two outdoor tennis courts. This was very nice. You could enter the pool from inside the sports club by passing through a short passage into the pool. This is in 4 and ½ feet of water so it needs to be used carefully by children and non-swimmers.
The hotel is attached to a shopping center. As a result, there is quick access to many dining choices in addition to the in-house restaurants without going outside. Parking was convenient, but came with a significant fee (but less than out hotel in Denver and way less than our hotel in Chicago).
We enjoyed our stay.
