The great part about staying here is obviously the location. Most places you can walk to. The staff was very friendly (especially a certain member of housekeeping, but more on that later). Being on the eighteenth floor meant that for the most part it was quiet (barring the hacking cough that was situated the floor above us).
Now for the bad...the room we had was small by comparison, I think they need to rethink the king-sized bed, as it takes up most of the room. There isn't a single table or chair in the whole room (only on the balcony). On most days our bed was not made up until LATE in the afternoon. One particular afternoon I was getting changed out of my swimsuit and a member of housekeeping walked in (unannounced) and at the very least got a glimpse of my naked butt. And if you want coffee for your in-room coffee maker, be sure to ask at the front desk otherwise you'll be running down in the morning. The pool was a little on the small size (it must be jam packed during the heat of the summer). And the lazy river??!! It was a little more like a lazy creek. My living room at home is bigger and that's not saying a whole lot.
The highlight of our trip was being on the eighteenth floor and having the fire alarm go off. Fun getting dressed and trying to get to the stairs, we made it the fourteenth floor before it was cancelled. Overall a good place for couples, but not so family oriented.
