            Reception team was slow, another bad thing the TV set started automatically at 5 am and woke me up, worst tea Ive ever had in my life.

          • Location is excellent for shopping, hotel is also convenient to downtown and the staff is trained to recite the renovation is coming soon story. The rooms are large and the elevators have been updated.

            The decor is old and tired, the furniture and decorations are definately out dated. Not well marked and parking in The Galleria underground lot is a near nightmare, things in shower taps is broken, no better choice for a shopping trip to high end Galleria.

            The hotel was never able to properly regulate the temps and beyond the crummy service and lack of preparation, I found dirty.
