Friendly knowledgeable staff. Good location. Quiet and clean.
Most of the staff was very friendly, and the decor was nice.
The walls were paper thin and you could hear absolutely everything. Our first room was over the parking garage entrance, and would shake like a small earthquake each time the garage door would open. After requesting a change, we were put directly over the lounge, which pumped loud music into our (2nd story) room all night. The rooms were filthy, with mold growing in the bathroom, and years of filth piled anywhere the vacuum did not immediately reach. To top in all off, on our way out, my wife decided to take a few pictures of the pool. There was one person sitting by the pool (on the side opposite of us) obviously vaporizing nicotine, so the hotel staff decided to come yell at my wife and I, threatening us with fines for smoking. It was aggressive, rude, and forceful, when they had no idea as to the actual situation. I would NEVER stay here again.
close to our daughters home
Comfy bed. Great value
Bathrooms could be nicer.
It was a nice place.
They charged me a daily parking rate in addition to the other costs. This was an issue because I did not realize they were charging me.
Very unique and interesting hotel. The staff were friendly and our room was neat and clean. The hotel is located in a cool part of the city with plenty of nearby restaurants and bars. I would definitely stay here again!
The attached restaurant near the lobby was over priced, in my opinion, and the service could have been a bit better. For example, the server knocked over my wife's coffee and made a mess on the table, but they never cleaned it up. We had to use our napkins to do it ourselves. Not a huge deal, but could have been better.
Had the old Hollywood feel and look. The staff was very friendly and very helpful.
only neg. was the reception on the TV.
no microwave and refrigerator in the room.
No mini fridge or microwave
Loved the atmosphere, location, decorations, pool, style, amenities, bar, lobby. There were a few annoyances, but the items mentioned above made up for them.
The space under the bedroom door was large, so that a lot of light would shine through at night (used a towel to block the light). The shower would only get lukewarm at best. The stationary bike in the fitness room would not turn on (so you could not set the resistance). There was no access to wall outlets near the bed to plug in phone chargers (they were well behind the bed, with no power strip or extension cord to allow for easy access). Despite these, had a great stay and the benefits far outweighed these minor annoyances.
Staff was great! Super friendly and helpful. I liked the old hollywood decor, the over sized chess and checkers were awesome. And as my daughter said the Gatsby pool was amazing. Clean place.
We only stayed one night. And its kind of far away from things. There are not many things to do within walking distance.
We liked the atmosphere. We also liked the functionality of the Suze Suite since we had a 5 year old and a 3 year old with us. We liked the onsite restaurant as well. All the staff was friendly.
Keys to the room didn't work at first and we had to get the door replaced. No big deal at first but then when we added that up with a refrigerator that wasn't working, still not a biggie. On Monday I asked for someone to check out the fridge while we were at Seaworld all day. They said they would replace it. When we got home late Monday night, the refrigerator still wasn't working. I started looking around and looked behind the cabinet it was in and guess what...it wasn't plugged in. I pulled the entire wall unit out, plugged it in, and then it was working. The part that disappointed me was that someone said they would have it replaced and that obviously didn't happen.
