We had a corner suite that was two floors above the covered pool level that gave us a nice view of the streets below and all the foot traffic.thick fluffy bathrobes, huge towels, all the nice little hotel amenities like shampoo, lotion, conditioner. The staff at the front desk were polite, well-spoken and courteous.
