5 star stay in a 3 star hotel. Yes, it is an older hotel, but in great shape and clean. Paid $110 per night on Expedia - great value. Friends stayed at LaPosada for $420 per night total (room, valet, taxes, resort fee) and they were kicking themselves..
Every staff member was friendly and accommodating, especially the management office which helped me with some last minute work I had to get done. Location: loved that it wasn't on the crowded and loud plaza but only 1.5 miles away. Trader Joes, Whole foods and dunkin donuts close by. Bed were comfy; sheets crisp. Good southwest vibe. We didn't have any trouble with parking. If you want to dance - this is the place at night. The pool area was comfortable, with cushy chair pads. Bartenders came down from tthe 2nd floor bar during the day to offer us drinks.
CONS: Yes, the pool was quite cold, but we swam briefly anyway. That's all I got .
Read the reviews for Mucho Gusto restaurant and be sure to go - outstanding!
Drove 15 minutes away to Buffalo Thunder casino - that was fun too.More
