The views over the water were absolutely stunning and could be seen from your room and a few of the restaurants too. It was great having such a big conference room...

Initially we had our reservations if we should book this hotel as the hotel appears a little old and we were not there for the casino. After check-in, we were surprised that the rooms were well maintained and had a great view. Strongly recommend the Tower Harbor View if you like to have a good view. I'll let the pictures...
