      It was air conditioned during a heat wave . The location was great .

      A very friendly concierge and door man service. All necessary facilities are available and/or close by.

      Management tries to take advantage of their guest (providing rooms without windows, but with wardrobe beds and water droping from the sealing). Only after complaining a proper 4* service was delivered, but revealed that the management was aware of the condition of the room but just thought to give it a try. Very poor.

    • Older travelers

      Lobby most impressive. Rooms are a very good size and that is due to being an older hotel.

      No coffee pots in the room and no coffee provided. Both are delivered to the room by special request. Also no ice machines on any floor and that too is delivered by special request. A bit of a tedious process for both.

      I really enjoyed that the locations was close to everything we were planning on doing. The price was great and the concierge went above and beyond to help us out.They gave us two rooms that were like a suite so we went in one door with both our room numbers on it and than a hall way separated our 2 doors so it was very private.

      Despite its many good points, it felt a strangely impersonal hotel.

      Location and room.

      They overbooked the night we arrived ; we were given a spare room(seriously). They never told us at first place. We had to fight to get something from them : this was outrageous. Finally, we received a suite the next day but still it was unnaceptable.

      our weekend was ruined because they screwed up our reservation. We had reserved a King Deluxe room, and got stuck with 2 double beds. We had to sleep in separate beds, there were ladies hair pieces left behind in the room, and dried up urine on the toilet seat. We were not impressed. For what is known as a fancy hotel, this was quite disappointing.
