Spent January 12-19 at Occidental Grand and was very pleased with our stay. Staff were great and accommodating, rooms were clean and maintained well, although the screen on our patio door needed repair. Staff repaired the door within the hour, no other problems. The daily upgrade to the Royal Club is a wise move and worth the extra $20 each....
