Stayed a week at this place, very quirky.... First of all the hotel seems to be a series of buildings that were built with no consideration of being connected and then were connected, so the floors seem to be offset from each other and you have half floors, need to see it to believe it.
Also the laundry service is a bit weird, apparently (as is the case in every damn hotel I've ever been to), filling the laundry bag and fully filling out the laundry form is not enough, you also have to call the front desk to get someone to come over and pick it up. After I got through that, I got no laundry back for like 3 days, finally I called the front desk and they said they had not been able to deliver my clothes because I had not been in my room, not sure the logic there since the maids come in regularly (clean and do evening turndowns) without me being in the room....
Good stuff, the gym is the best damn hotel (actually resort) gym you could ever imagine, a huge weight room, jogging track, rock climbing wall, regulation wood floor basketball court, list goes on forever.
Food was pretty good and the rooms are very nice and quiet though it seems to be tough to get cell phone coverage in the hotel rooms.
