We spent 4 days in a two room suite in this hotel and had a very mixed experience.
On the good side, the location was perfect for our needs. In addition, the suite was very large and designed to optimize functionality. While there were some problems with housekeeping, the overall experience with the room was good.
Food service left a great deal to be desired. The only option was a good quality steak house (Strip Steak) with what was basically a fine dining menu. If you wanted something casual, there was no real option other than room service. As to breakfast, it was included in our rate. However, after two days of the worst continental breakfast I have recently encountered, we preferred to go out a pay for something of better quality. Things were even worse on the weekends in that no breakfast was available until 8:00 AM. In addition, no food service was available at lunch. This is not acceptable in hotel of this size.
The "ugly" was the fitness center. There was not an adequate amount of equipment (on 3 occasions during our stay we could not access a machine), the equipment that was there was of poor quality, and there was no time during our stay when all of it was in working order.
