Check-in at this hotel right after I got off the plane at LAX. The 24-hour hotel shuttle service is a big plus for those stay overnight for the next day flight. The room check-in process was fast. I was given a deluxe room that's facing the hotel car park. The room was clean and equipped with everything I needed...basic amenities and a coffee maker. The only thing that I can complain about is the location of its swimming pool.It's located next to the hotel lobby. This makes me uncomfortable to swim as I can see people walking around in the lobby.
My friend and I wanted to have mexican food for dinner. We took the suggestion from the hotel concierge and tried the restaurant nearby. The restaurant was only a few minutes away from my hotel but it's not easy for us to find the restaurant entrance.
We were given salsa and chips while we were waiting for table in the bar. Both were tasting good.
I had Fiesta Platter (buffalo wings, some deep fried dumplings and gaucomole) I believed the gaucomole was freshly made which was a perfect match for the chips. The buffalo wings and the deep fried dumplings were good aslo but not as impressive as the gaucomole.
Chile Relleno and Enchilada It's actually a chili pepper wrap with enchilada. The rice was overcooked. I wish they would put more cheese to the enchilada.
During our dinner, I heard people singing birthday songs for several times. The restaurant seems a popular place for birthday celerbration.
Overall, average food, average price and good service.
I picked this hotel for its location. Reached Phoenix by air and was happy that the airport shuttle stopped right next to the light rail station outside the hotel. It's a small hotel with everything you need for a short stay.
