    The cocktails were great. The view from Hot Tin is spectacular. Jack Rose is really good for a meal and atmosphere. The staff makes the property worth considering another stay.

    The air conditioner in room was ok. Never got the room to our desired temperature. No other real complaints.

    The restaurants served fantastic food. Service was excellent and the location was convenient.

    Bathrooms could have been given a little bit more attention , esp fixtures that are hanging off of the wall loose.
