We stayed in suite 2526 (honeymoon suite), the view is very nice with large windows. That was the most important feature for us.
The suite kitchenette is extremely basic, do not expect to cook anything other than toasts, bacon and eggs. Forget about even salt & pepper. I would have expected to have at least 2 wine or champagne glasses in an honeymoon suite, but you will have to use the typical bathroom style glasses. No oven, no dishwasher.
There is a huge bathtub (non Jacuzzi), but no bubble bath or salts, nothing.
No room service at all, you have to order online for room delivery (9$ extra)
The pool is very small and packed, shadowed until 2 PM.
Wifi is free, but disconnects every 15 minutes. Streaming music is not an option.
Entirely non smoking but one small and remote section. (Most people will move this comment to the GOOD section :)
Parking (28$) is valet only, it was next to impossible to find parking in this area.
The restaurant at ground level is serving horrible food, the wine was slightly better than vinegar.
You can't bill it to your room, that is probably a good thing, you really want to forget everything about this place.
Fortunately that are so many other great restaurants around, so do not waste your time there.
We liked the view, great location, forget about the kitchenette.
