higher expectations?

My curiosity since the remodel drew me to reserve a one night stay. Great friendly staff. However, the small essentials such as guest towels, I was unimpressed. Something I expected from a 1star rating. :-(

giant hotel a taxi ride away from center of town

While the staff was extremely pleasant, and the amenities relatively complete, the price point, location and endless confusing and dull corridors resulted in overall disappointment.

Horrible Experience

I have stayed at this hotel in the past but this time was not a good experience. The staff was not very helpful and probably the worst experience at a hotel. From check in to check out I was not very happy.

A VERY UNHAPPY CUSTOMER

I BOOKED THIS HOTEL FOR A FAMILY GETAWAY BECAUSE IT WAS OUR 5 YEAR ANNIVESARY AND MOTHER'S DAY THE SAME DAY. WHEN WE GOT TO THE HOTEL IT WAS SO NICE & COLORFUL LIKE VEGAS HOTEL AND WE FREQUENT IN VEGAS. BUT WHEN WE GOT IN THE ROOM IT SMELLED LIKE URINE, I HAD TO SPRAY THE ROOM DOWN WITH PERFUME JUST TO STAY IN THERE & I BOOKED 2 BEDS BECAUSE WE BROUGHT OUR 9YR OLD DAUGHTER & WE WERE GIVING 1 BED & WE WEREN'T ABLE TO GET ANOTHER ROOM BECAUSE IT WASN'T AVAILABLE, ALSO THE BATHROOM HAD ANTS CRAWLING ALL OVER THE BATHROOM COUNTER & THE JACUZZI IS SO DIRTY ITS LIKE THEY HAVEN'T CLEAN IT IN WEEKS. THE REASON I BOOKED THIS HOTEL IS BECAUSE OF THE EXCELLENT PICTURES THAT'S ON THE WEBSITE, PEOPLE SAY DON'T JUDGE THE BOOK BY ITS COVER. THEY ARE SO RIGHT!

we got robed

The place had some hidden charges i will dispute, and on the last day , some one walked to my daughters room and tole her wallet, computer and ipod. The security was totally unprofessional and responded 24 hours later. Thy didn't have cameras to see who the perpetrator was and the hotel insurance has not responded yet although, the caim is not going to be covered. I shall never want to go to this place again

Fun times at this trendy hotel!

Great hotel and fun getaway for people looking for a mini-Vegas style pool party scene. Friends recommended this hotel to me because they said it was more for a younger crowd (I'm in my early 30s) and had a fun pool party atmosphere, and it was all that! Even though I read some mixed reviews on the hotel, overall, I had a great experience. We went the weekend after Memorial Day. I booked a week in advance and got a 15% discount for a Junior Mediterranean Suite. Not a bad deal if you split with friends. The hotel was booked for the weekend, a good sign of its popularity, so make reservations way in advance! When I called the hotel to get room-type recommendations, the lady recommended the cheaper suite (so I know I got her honest opinion). As soon as we got to the hotel, you could see the ritzy glowing orange lobby lights from afar, we were greeted by friendly staff. Surprisingly, we were able to check in early at 3pm (check in is usually 4pm) and if you self park, parking is free with the stay. They give you up to four wristbands for the main pool area since it gets crowded on Saturdays. Like everyone thinks, the wristbands are annoying (the ink rubs off) and there was a guard who checks at the front from the lobby entrance. I don't think you need wristbands especially if you are a hotel guest and this is considered to be a luxury hotel. The pool had a playful design; crowded, but that was to be expected. They played good top 40 music, overall good looking crowd for people watching (looked mostly like people in their 30s), and lots of bachelor/bachelorette party groups. Nothing outrageously wild happened at the pool, but it had a good vibe all around. Since it was later in the afternoon, we were able to get towels and tables near the bar. Drinks averaged $11-12 each, are not that strong and prepare to wait and be disappointed, the service at the Bikini Bar was reeeeeally slow. They didn't seem to be that sincerely apologetic when we had waited at least 20 minutes for each drink. Better to order a double or triple up front! The music stops playing at 5pm so I missed out on the earlier afternoon party scene. The junior suites are very spacious - a king, queen sofa, balcony, two sinks, tub and shower. The decor everywhere is swanky and a bit cheesy; overdone with fun patterns, jewels and glitz, but adds to the hip character of the hotel. Room service was friendly and prompt with extra towels. Access to the hotel room buildings is too easy, there should be room key access to get inside (other than the pool gate); I felt it could have had more security. The hotel is about a mile and a half from the main bars/restaurants off Palm Canyon Drive, so quick drive if you cab or drive it there. We came back to the hotel at 11pm and there was still a good party scene going on at the Sidebar lounge with the simliar party crowd from the pool and the DJ also played top 40 music. I had a blast! It's a smaller bar, but there are also seats/tables outside. The fire pits around the pool add to a nice evening atmosphere if you just want to chill with your friends. I was able to get a complimentary late check out at 1pm the next day (normal checkout is at 12pm) so got to hit the pool early Sunday before we left. The crowd was more subdued and the music is more loungy, but perfect way to end the weekend. I will definitely want to stay in this hotel again (if I can get a good price) and recommend to younger people looking for a hip place to stay. I'll also have to come back to check out the spa facilities and Circa 59. Thanks for a great stay!

The hotel and staff were so nice. It ended up being much better than the discription or how I thought it would be. The main focus of the hotel seemed the be customer satisfaction. I didnt think such a thing still exist in this day and age but thats what they offer you. They only want to pamper and provide excellent service to the guest and is now my permanent vacation spot!
