8.2 Great
Cons:Internet data cap
9.1 Excellent
Pros:Always good.
Cons:Restaurants need work.
8.0 Great
Pros:Gorgeous view of the sunrise. Great location. The staff were welcoming, and gracious.
Cons:Our room felt like a converted broom closet. For a hotel of this rating, I expected something a bit more spacious. Be wary of windows that open wide without any safety precautions. It was a bit hairy being on the tenth floor, and leaning out of the window with nary a safety net in sight!
