Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 What I expect
One of the questions above was memorable experience. When I stay at a hotel on a business trip, I don't want to remember the hotel, so I don't want a "Memorable experience". This hotel was clearly very new - not a year old, and possibly not even 3 months old. The staff, the room, and the experience was just what I am looking for - friendly check-in & a clean, comfortable room.
Thinking of Pros and Cons - The bathroom smelled strongly of bleach when I first entered the room. At least I knew it was clean. Also, the staff disposed of the soap I brought and I was forced to use the soap in the room.
Finally, the side entrance doors that need a key to access did not work; I have chalked that up to the facility being so new.

I only have 2 comments and both of them are minor.
The first is that they must have really hard water because on the shower head only the center section worked and acted like a high pressure hose, I have the same type of water at home, Until the shower head plugs up with deposits there is no way to tell when it is going to happen.
The second has nothing to do with the hotel itself, some idiot decided to crank up his t.v. at 4 a.m. The rest of the stay was just fine.

While this is a beautiful hotel (i.e. modern lobby, outstanding pool area) I didn't get the "warm and fuzzy" feeling I usually get from a stay in a hotel. First of all, I guess I was missing the morning self-serve breakfast that has become the standard. This hotel did have a "pay as you go" breakfast that was offered in "last nights" bar area (chairs still turned upside down on the bar). It was expensive by our measure and lacked warmth. Also, this is the first time anyone has taken our order and said, "OK, that should be ready in about 12-14 minutes!" What's that all about? It made my wife comment that "were they going down the street to the Waffle House to get the breakfast and bring it back?" Really though, it was closer to 20 minutes before we got our order. During that time we watched a family get up from their table and leave without their food. The young husband stayed and asked for all their food to be boxed, as they had to leave.
The pool area is to die for. We stayed here before and it was too cold to swim, so we were hoping this time we could swim. No chance. A beautiful unheated pool. We opted for the hot tub again… and it was great!
It seems a waste to us to have such a great pool that can only be used a few months in the very hottest of summer days. We live for the pools and hot tubs when we travel and unfortunately this beautiful hotel won't be on our list anymore.
