The service is wonderful, from the valet parking to the quick check-in process. Everyone calls you by name and is friendly and helpful. We had the bell staff take our bags from the car, so as soon as we left the front desk, he was waiting and led the way to our room. He put our luggage in the room and showed us where the lights were and how to control the heat. To top it off, he went and brought us a bucket of ice.
We didn’t get a view with the room, but it had a huge window that let in a lot of light. The TV is on a swivel and pulls out of the cabinet, so we could sit at the little table, have our drinks, and watch the news. The beds are comfortable enough to lie on and read a book for a while without a backache, and there were enough pillows--four on each bed. There is the customary alarm-clock radio and notepads, as well as notecards/stationery and nice pens. The furniture is done in a dark wood color, with carvings on it to compliment the Native American theme. There is framed artwork above the beds and one in the bathroom.
The bathroom is roomy--big enough for us both to be in at the same time and put on our makeup. A large mirror covers one whole wall, and the vanity has room to place all your toiletry items. There is a hair dryer and coffee pot, as well as a clothes iron and more glasses. The shower and tub are standard-size, but instead of the "plastic" interior, the wall is a fake flagstone--I think that’s what you call it. The water pressure is good--something I am a stickler about, since I want the shower to sting at full blast. This one does.
We took advantage of the large indoor heated swimming pool and hot tub. They provide towel service for you. I especially like that there are adults-only hours for the pool in the morning and then again at night for a few hours.
