Great weekend vacation
We had a great time. Perfect spot right in the middle of everything. The restaurant was great. Service in the hotel was perfect. We loved being able to take the bicycles. I will book again next year.

Ehhhh
The hotel updated and comfortable. The service was poor. The women at the front desk seemed bothered to check you in. I only found out where to get pool towels when I saw others asking for them.

Great place very clean and modern. BUT theres is a night club right next door so if yuor unfortunate like me and end up getting a room close to the night club YOU WILL HAVE A HARD TIME SLEEPING. pros are you can to the night club the bed was so comfortable 10 minutes in i knocked out and didnt even notice the bumping music. also. they charge a resort fee ( $25 ) this is + room purchase

Deafening chaos
Firstly, a young woman who demonstrated poor people skills told me rudely that I did not have a booking. She was corrected by a fellow worker who proceeded to help with my check-in. We were not told of the facilities of the hotel even though we paid a $25 resort fee per night for 3 nights. When we were leaving we saw that people were being told about free bikes, beach umbrellas, free water etc. We were told that our King room would be at the adjoining Edison hotel (part of their establishment) - not what I had booked. Again when we were checking out, customers at the front desk were being given an option of where to stay. There was no assistance with bags when we arrived even though we needed to go through a courtyard to a lift in the Gelato shop. The maid service was good as was my experience at checkout. That may have been because the "boss" was there overseeing his staff on that day. The front desk person on duty that night was friendly as was another young woman early the next morning when I needed to get a taxi to the airport (I returned that night). The music around was insanely deafening - my bed literally vibrated with the sound until 4 am. The Havana Restaurant was terribly overpriced - 2 empanadas for $16 with a 25% service fee for a take-out at 11:45 pm when I returned from my day away. All in all, I will not go back. If it's drinking and partying you're after, then go for it. The location is great but I will book above 13th Street next time.
