First time I stayed here in years. I was looking forward to the visit and the stay in the iconic room with huge bathtub with shutters looking out to the palm trees/beach/pool. Well that's not what I got. I came for a conference so my room was somewhat discounted ($395/night - not cheap at all) and at that rate I got a small, dark room overlooking an alley/side street with (gasp) no tub at all. I spent one night in the room and the next morning I woke up to 2 inches of murky water in my shower and had to request a place to shower quickly so I could get ready for a morning event. They gave me a new room on a higher floor - a much nicer room - and I stayed there for the rest of the conference. Even in this nicer room, the handle was missing on the shower and someone knocked on the door despite the Do Not Disturb sign because she thought the room was vacant and was surprised to find someone inside. Hmm. Staff was very nice but be sure to ask for a room with the tub and let them know if anything is not working properly in your room.
