I stayed in this hotel with my family (husband and two teenagers) on New Years Eve. I must admit my initial reaction was one of disappointment because I had overlooked its location and I thought I had booked a more central hotel so that we could enjoy the first night activities. However you have to make the best of your situation. The hotel is very large and spacious. The rooms are modern and clean. There were four of us in a room which was OK for one night before flying back to the UK, but for a few days the wardrobe would not have been large enough. The view once the fog had cleared and it had stopped snowing was quite nice. The beds were lovely and very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size with quality fittings. The shower looked very impressive but was a let down!!! The gym was well equipped but the swimming pool was very small and we didn't use it. The gift shop was good and had a good selection of souvenirs, sweets and toiletries and the prices were reasonable. The Irish bar served good food and we thought was reasonably priced, certainly not the most expensive that we had come across. Because we decided not too go out in the evening, we were able to order food for the kids and take it up to the room which was very handy and a lot cheaper than ordering room service. We had breakfast at the hotel. The food was ok, nothing special. The waitress we had was rather miserable and the price was average. The reception staff were very helpful and allowed us to keep our room on at no extra charge for a couple of hours which we found unusual and a nice surprise. We did get a taxi to Macys and it was around $8.00. but we walked back and it wasn't too far and quite enjoyable despite the freezing cold. We used the valet parking because I thought I had read somewhere that it was only valet parking but I gather you can park your own car. In summary a large modern hotel, handy for the airport, not too far from the shops but not in the centre of things. I don't think I would return.
