Anonymous, Mar 2024

When checking in I was charged a $40 per night “destination fee” to cover things like the hotel gym, wi-fi and in room coffee service. We received coffee only one of the four nights there and that took six calls to the front desk requesting it over the course of 12 hours. We gave up and had our morning coffee nearby. The king size bed was basically a giant hide a bed that had a massive trough in the lumbar area and made an incredible amount of noise at the slightest touch. I ended up rotating the mattress and shoving towels between the bed frame and the wall to dampen the noises. Any attempts to correct issues with hotel staff were met with “right away sir. I’m so sorry” and then no action in spite of numerous calls and trips to the front desk.
