4/5 Good

Staff was great and it was clean. But all of the restaurants are not open everyday. Also the site says 24 hour room service and that is not the case. There is not any room service available. The morning bartender at the sports bars Julio was amazing!

I did not like the restaurant first come first serve process. The process for getting a table for dinner was not thoroughly explained at check in. We would get to the restaurant by 6 and it was already booked.
