                The location is great!

                The hotel service is spotty. There are days when turn down service happens and days that do not. Room service breakfast was never able to accurately have things as I asked. Each morning, there was something missing/forgotten/wrong. Whenever I call concierge, housekeeping/front desk etc. I am always put on hold for a long time.

                Everything. It was perfect.

                Room was a little small but I can't complain for the price I paid.

                The location of the hotel is superb, and the staff were extremely attentive and helpful at every level. It was my second stay at this hotel and hopefully it will not be long before I stay for a third time, that's how much I enjoy it.

                We booked this hotel last minute and received a great deal on a suite that accomodated 3 adults and 2 children! For the luxurious value, definately the best price by far of all the better hotels in that area! Their pool was open too unlike Trump which was closed for renovations! The concierge was key in making our stay work with reservations and room service and house keeping made sure we always had what we needed and wanted! It was clean, kid friendly and the spa/fitness/pool area was great! At the end we had several of us very sick with a stomach flu and the staff were great!

                The front desk was hit or miss! Most of the people were accomodating and nice but at least one person couldn't have found his way out of a paper bag. I had to ask several times for robes for my children and even then they werent there when we arrived. Another woman was less than accomodating in that she didnt seem to understand my need. Other than those two people, whom I might add the hotel was redeemed by others and my needs were met graciously and promptly...I Found all the staff to be of high quality!
