This is a top-notch hotel, and you expect and get top-notch service, amenities, facilities, pool, comfort. It's a standard for many of the airline staff. Of course, it's more expensive than the run-of-the-mill motel, but - to a large extent - you get what you pay for. Just a couple of surprising flaws. There was only one robe in the...

A good location, although a little bit away from the downtown center. Luxurious facilities, with well appointed rooms, comfortable beds and all amenities you would expect. Nice pools and Jacuzzi with numerous restaurant-type spaces. Conference rooms. Easy internet access. Very supportive staff, with prompt attention to any request. Only queen beds (rather than king), but that was OK.

The first thing my wife and I noticed was the large lobby with bar and restaurant. It was quite attractive. The beds were comfortable, but our room had a table lamp missing a foot and therefore wobbled (anyone dusting couldn't have missed it). The bathroom had mildew on the tile grout and ceiling and the fan was clogged with dust....

As expected from the intercontinental chain, Hotel is large, with grand lobby area, bar and restaurant. Foyer extends upwards with large lobby areas on each floor. However the open plan design does mean noise carries from the bar upwards to bedrooms closest to the lifts. Staff are noisy during the night undertaking maintenence, again maybe due to the open foyer....

Nice room with 2 beds, large bathroom, big buffet for breakfast. Large dining room with huge glass windows. Big pool with several levels - but not enough chairs. There are many staff members walking around helping with food or drink orders. Spacious lobby. Located across from a mall.

We stayed here for 2 nights. I was not impressed with the front desk. They were friendly, but, indifferent. It was nice to have multiple pools, jacuzzi, gym, spa and a few restaurants to choose from and I enjoyed just decompressing for 2 days by the pool before our 2-week adventure kicked off. Would I go back, no. I prefer...

The rooms are clean, quiet, gorgeous, and comfortable. The grounds are beautifully kept and attractive. Bathrooms are spacious. Came here with a Caravan tour. I wish we could have stayed more than one night.

I love this facility. It has a gorgeous lobby, very nice rooms, and a drop dead "to die for" court yard landscaped with beautiful pools. It also has a well above average health club/gym/spa. The front desk staff has always been extremely cordial and friendly. There are also numerous restaurants on the property to choose from all of which are...
