10.0 Wonderful

10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Hip boutique hotel. Very friendly and professional staff. Clean, comfortable, quiet rooms. Excellent location.
Cons:On-site Mexican restaurant is overpriced.
4.0 Mediocre
Pros:Nice bar, interesting retro decor, fairly clean
Cons:Hard bed, AC loud & didn't cool the tiny room, no shower curtain so the bathroom was soaked, staff was rude & unaccommodating, wouldn't put friends nearby or even on the same floor
6.8 Okay
Pros:Small room, small tight bathroom. Noisy AC unit.
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:The staff was friendly and helpful in all areas - much more so than at other hotels we have visited. We would come back happily 9in fact plan to do so for next year's AZ Ironman). By then the new restaurant will be open so we will have a choice of where to eat. The outdoor pool was one of the best I have ever used. Perfect temperature and great size. And plenty of nice fluffy towels to dry off with. Your shuttle service was great - next time we won't rent a car.
