What travellers think
Your staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I love how you make people aware of the importance of water and have put in place ways to conserve it. Rooms are very hot. Air conditioning or some other way to circulate the air would make a huge difference.

Budget meal tip
I had some wonderful meals at the Sol Cal Café, which is all vegetarian/organic and is reasonably priced. It's at 9th and Island (or is it 9th and J? something like that) I highly recommend it!!
