Argyle Salon & Spa at the Sunset Tower Hotel

Best Tech-Laden Spa Room, September 2006

Explaining that the last thing you want to hear after a mind-numbing spa treatment is the regularly whispered “Take your time getting dressed, and we’ll wait for you outside,” the Argyle Salon & Spa at the Sunset Tower Hotel is doing away with the wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am approach to spa service by offering amenities that encourage a lengthy stay. While it could be argued that those who feel soothed by wireless access during a massage probably require a different kind of therapy, the new spa rooms offer that and more. The treatment areas are outfitted with giant tubs, flat-panel TVs, room service, and free long distance—in case you want to make some calls and brag about the day.
