A great first impression - cool, hip; great staff; free daily cocktail; awesome pool/spa area; open air roof top bar with tasty mango margaritas. And a huge bedroom.
But the devil is in the details. It must be tough to manage a place like this with obvious design...well, flaws. Bathroom way too dark; make-up mirror not in the bathroom, but outside on the desk; not enough convenient electrical outlets. Some rooms overlook the pool; some are tucked around the corners near the housekeeping carts (room 319). And the lack of any business center facilities - I know I'm old (and old-fashioned) but it would have been nice to have access
Would I stay again? Absolutely, but with a better idea of what room type and location. And I'd book direct with the hotel for both the free breakfast, and the ability to get a better room. There's a reason those OTA rooms are sometimes looking inexpensive. Hint: deal direct with the hotel and control your destiny.
