Wow is the only word. Hotel Arts has a pool bar, that is open for business! It is within the guidelines of dining on patios, but it manages to feel like you're inside in a heated area. The brunch is epic. The beds are great, the toiletries are wonderful. The location can't be beat.

I just love spending time at their pool. Feels like a real holiday! Staff is so fun and the location is great. I would like to see some new snacking items on the pool menu though. I have always loved their food at events so i think they should add some of those items that are good for sharing.

Given that we couldn't travel to Mexico as planned this year, we took our vacation plans to Hotel Arts. We stayed for one night, going out to dinner at a nearby restaurant for nachos, and spending the evening drinking poolside. We very much enjoyed out time at the pool and felt safe with the distancing protocols and separated swim times. Brunch poolside the next morning was also fabulous- the food from Yellow Door Bistro was thoroughly enjoyed though be aware there are no vegan options on the menu for brunch. We were sad to hear that the table top brunch offering isn't available poolside, but the cubano eggs benedict made up for it! Dress up like a tourist and enjoy your staycation at Hotel Arts!

This package deal was great as it was convenient to purchase and seemed to suit people trying to stick to some covid-friendly staycation rules. But the bathroom was decidedly unclean - which immediately makes you wonder how safe it was. On the other hand, the food from Yellow Door was excellent and was a fun part of the adventure.

HOWEVER, if you're expecting truffle-flavoured "truffle popcorn", you won't get it! Read less

If you are COVID-19 cautious I would avoid Hotel Arts. That being said, the hotel is beautiful, with a great restaurant (Yellow Door Bistro) available for room service, and balconies on almost every room.
