I do not remember seeing a hot tub in the pool area. We did not use the pool but when in the room just for a look.

The Intermodal Station downtown would be several blocks and about 20 minutes on foot. Aside from walking, most guests use a taxi service or a ride app on their phone. It is about a 7 minute drive.
