The pool was nice but the beds were terrible plus they don't even have a vending machine for soda. We had to leave because of a water main break, but no one in the hotel would help with getting another place to stay. By the time they told us there was a problem, every hotel was booked!

Location was amazing! Right by all shops and restaurants. Room was ready early, but we had lots of little bugs on entertainment center in room. Moved to different room in newer wing which took a couple hours to do. Got comped $50 but I felt it should have been more for bugs. New room was much better but no shampoo and missing soap. Wonder how clean it actually was.
