          Altogether, the staff seemed a little aloof, not having flat tv is not acceptable nowadays.

The service was wonderful, the employees here were very nice and the room was too small, and there was very little light in the room. Bar were very friendly and the staff in the restaurant and lounge were fantastic.

          Front desk personnel was very snobbish lazy.

Better rates through booked, lobby is spacious and the front desk is very helpful as is the rest of the staff. Rooms size is nice, definitely, a 2nd lamp would be good and the Riviera Grill food is delicious and innovative.

          The tv was old and the seating area under the television/desk was just awkward, shower was made for people under 5', the restaurant service was kind of slow.

Our stay was amazing and the bar in the lobby had a nice cocktail hour each night. The staff were friendly and every employee I encountered was happy and helpful. Bed and pillows were very comfortable.

          Not easy to park and empty after 6 pm, not the best situation time is pressing, the hotel fortunately does provide complimentary limo service to the opera house. Robe in closet already used not cleaned.
