I worst experience ever. I was there mid march 2020, while I was in Uruguay, I find out that within 24 hrs USA was closing the boarders and all flights were cancel due to COVID 19. I was very lucky that America Airlines refunded my ticket and I was able to come back to USA in 24 hrs using COPA Air last flight. The hotel refused to refund 6 night that I didn't use, contacting a mger to explain the situation was impossible, also Expedia contacted them numerous times about the refund with no reply. This was an involuntary situation, that they didn't care to help !

Location was perfect. Right on a major city artery, with numerous points of interest in an easy walking periphery. Staff were fun in accommodating my practice of español, and the breakfast buffet was great. My expectations were met.

Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service
Looks nice, horrible front desk staff towards fore
Couldn't even stay here. Front desk was incredible how they were treating the dozen or so people trying to get a room when check-in started. They had some computer issue, or too many down rooms, so they said all our reservations were invalid. I peeked at this screen system, it seemed they had at least three "better" rooms available, but said they were not or they could not allow. We have video of this one guy finally exploding after the staff tried to ignore everyone until they just left. People prepaid for these rooms and some came from different countries. This place as a dozen country flags outfront yet was the most unfriendly place we have encountered in all sorry Americas how they treat Spanish speaking and non Spanish speaking foreigners. They insisted we did not prepay, even after showing credit card statement. We were forced to leave and stay with local couch surfer. We contacted Hotels.com and still no action or refund. We never stayed, we never signed or filled legal foreign guest documents, we are not in their security footage. Disgraceful
