Guest rooms and suites start at 392 square feet and feature high-definition televisions, coffee makers, minifridges and balconies or patios with neighborhood or pool and mountain vistas. A few prior travelers bemoaned this Hilton outpost's pricey nightly room rates (which do not include the property's $25 resort fee); however, many said their clean accommodations and pleasant encounters with the resort's staff justified paying extra or using Hilton Honors rewards points to stay here. Plus, guests have access to on-site amenities like a 27-hole golf course, a swimming pool, a spa and nine tennis courts. Two eateries – Polanco Kitchen, which dishes up Californian cuisine, and Mira Bar & Café, a casual bar with light bites and handcrafted cocktails – are available as well.
