I can’t say enough about how great this place is!! Convenient location, cleanliness, rooms are spacious and we had a pool balcony view!! The pool was amazing only thing is we saw a guest with open wounds like cellulitis swimming in the pool and we notify staff but the next day she was back in the pool so we weren’t able to swim due to possible infection spread. Overall the hotel I beautiful and we had a great time!

Check in was fantastic. Room was clean, close to elevator and pool. Nice view of the pool. I called to request a microwave a night or so before we arrived. Was told to check that one was in the room. It wasn't, but was promptly brought up when we called the front desk. The Wall next to the window had a bit of water damage that had not been taken care of. But everything else about the room was nice except for the on demand service did not work. Check out wasn't very pleasant. After asking if I could redeem some member points for a muffin that was purchased was quickly dismissed and not given a copy of our folio for check out. When later checking the folio by email, I saw that we were overcharged at the hotel market. Then upon further research saw that I should have been able to redeem my hard earned points that were expiring soon for the food purchase that i had charged to the room. Several days we also requested for our room to be refreshed and was told that it would be done. But that didn't happen until a third request was made on our second to last day.
