The pool was open except for two mornings from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. while they did some repair work on the surfacing around the pool.
They are building a new convention area, and when it is completed, they will use the old convention area for new spa facilities (hopefully complete by Feb. 2002), which will make the hotel even nicer.
Our time here was great. Our favorite restaurants in the area were Pairs (Japanese with a California flair) and Bistro Don Giovanni. If you've booked a room here through Priceline, go with realistic expectations, keep in mind the great deal you got, and have a great time!
