It has been two years since I last visited this hotel and the one thing that stood out was the friendliness of the staff. Everyone from the front desk, to the housekeeping and maintenance staff were all very friendly whenever we encountered them. Weather was cooler but the heated pool and hot tub was still comfortable. This hotel is in a great location along Seawall Blvd. If you are in town for a convention you can't get any closer to the convention center. It's also an easy walk to restaurants (Landry's, Rainforest Cafe, Holiday Inn and the San Luis resort). We had a balcony room which provides a view of the pool and of the waterfront. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. The bar area is cozy and there was a two man band playing on the weekend who were pretty good. They have a workout room with four or five cardio machines and an adjoining weight room with enough to get in a decent workout. Frankly, if the weather is nice walk across the street and run along the seawall instead for a scenic cardio workout. One thing that impressed me was that one of the treadmills malfunctioned when I was there. Within 30 minutes a maintenance person showed and and had it fixed in minutes AND while he was there he also checked the other machines to confirm they were all working which was impressive. So overall a great experience and I would definitely go back.
