This is a review based on the tattoo policy ONLY.
The room was adequate and the Japanese restaurant here was amazing. The reason I am writing is because of the prejudiced tattoo policy.
I was allowed to use the pool, but denied entry into the fitness center unless I covered my tattoos. I have two full sleeve tattoos. I was allowed to use the indoor pool, the restaurants, they were happy to take my money for the hotel and other uses. But, for some reason, I was not allowed to exercise unless I covered my tattoos. With two full sleeves, that means wearing a long-sleeved shirt to exercise in the middle of summer. How unacceptable and archaic.
I spoke to the front desk about this. The worker was actually surprised that this was a rule. First, the worker thought the fitness supervisor was using personal prejudice, but I explained that it is actually on a posted sign, too. Both the front desk worker and the fitness supervisor agreed that the rule is prejudiced and nonsensical, but they had to enforce the hotel’s rules. The front desk person said they would pass the information along to the higher ups.
The fitness center itself is adequate. You can rent shoes if you need them. Free weights are a modest selection, adequate weight machines, several running machines, and you can also hire a personal trainer. There is a sauna option as well.
Again, the low review is ONLY for the tattoo policy. The staff was kind and helpful, the food was quite good for the breakfast buffet and insanely delicious for the Japanese restaurant…I never knew food could taste THAT good!! The room was comfortable.
