Location, staff, great pool and work put facilities. We were able to walk where ever we needed to go. Architecture is beautiful. Great place to stay. Comfortable rooms, nice view. We loved our stay and will go back.
Need a better coffee maker. Small microwave in room. Fridge for your own soft drinks. Mini bar was very expensive
Location was fantastic and newly renovated older tower was lovely. Pool and health center were fantastic
When we parked in the garage, no one offered to help us with our luggage. The parking fee was astronomical at $67 a night. I was charged $400 plus dollars for a mini bar that we never touched and it was obviously from another room as the names on the requests were not us. One employee said she would have to investigate and it would delay our checkout. NOT GOOD! I called the front desk again and spoke to someone else who immediately removed it
Nice bar and restaurant in the hotel
Very slow elevators, mini-bar costs were outrageous. No one wants those any more. Guests would like a frig and microwave. Cost of room was outrageous for how mediocre the rooms were. The parking is a total rip off at $67 a night.
Room was small but clean. Bathroom was nice.
$65 for parking? Really?!? I guess I could have parked in a ramp nearby, but didn't want to deal with the whole schlepping the luggage back and forth the the city...
The deluxe room appearance
This was my first time here and it was AWESOME! I would defiantly recommend. The staff was very friendly and welcoming . The rooms were beautiful and clean . We had a nice view as well . The beds were super comfortable as well made the weekend awesome.
I didnt like that i wasnt informed ahead of time of a deposit , since i booked it online and it gave me a total , i was thinking that was the total . I was then informed i would get my deposit back the next day and it did not hit my acct for three days . I just dont like to be misinformed. My last complaint would be that the bathroom doors were kinda small.
Great location,cleanliness, comfortable beds.
Location Ease of Check In and Check Out
View overlooked the back of the building. Room was right next to elevators, but it was very quiet.
Clean, comfortable rooms - great location!
The only thing I disliked was the pool! Not very kid friendly!
It was very clean & the staff was very friendly
The rooms were very small & the pool is not made for kids. I do not recommend this place if you have children. The refrigerator space for personal use will not hold anything it's so small. No microwave which is inconvenient for families with small children or babies.
location, price, amenities, bedding
bed was lumpy and I had trouble sleeping.
Ugly decor, tired looking lobby and public spaces, charge for internet, couldn't put anything in refrigerator because they charge if something is moved, stingy on the towels and soap.
