      Awesome 3 star hotel that makes you feel at home
      We checked and agoda for pricing but found it cheaper to book directly with the hotel. After booking their special rate, the website then gives you upgrade options (at hundreds in savings). Our room was a standard room with partial ocean view. The upgrade was to a junior suite with partial ocean view. Upon arrival 'Kisha' at the front desk greeted us with an attitude that lights up a room, and was the highlight of all the friendly professional staff. The room was at first appearance, your typical 3 star room. We did our standard 'night crawler' inspection then re-arranged the room to our liking. Didnt take long to realize that we where on a corner suite with 2 balconies that viewed the sunrise and sunset. The international market place was directly below us with a nice blend of city landscape and ocean views. Try getting rooms 1514, 1414 or 1214. Pretty much everything was within walking distance and 3 of the gay bars where on the same block. Do take note that the elevators where undergoing a retrofit - thus extra slow. There is a rowdy gangster type bar directly east of the hotel that attracts allot of police attention till closing. The surrounding rooftop fans help cover this noise. While waiting for a cab back to the airport, we did notice that this hotel is popular with gay couples. The staff didn't say goodbye - they said 'see you in 6 months'. Note: There weren't many kids cuz they closed the pool.
