Was pretty dissatisfied after our stay. The beds were so-so, staff was kind of polite at checkin but really wasn’t friendly and no staff talked to us the rest of our stay. Some review said free breakfast, but there isn’t. Someone also mentioned a fridge, but there wasn’t. Really expected a nicer room for the price. The room was sort of clean… Read more

The hotel was so charming with real Art Deco wood through out (they are redecorating) gorgeous city views, plenty of valet parking, amazing food, made a difficult time so much better. I was booked at another hotel and instead came back here… Read more

I was shocked when I checked into my room, very old furniture with noisy AC, noisy fridge, I couldn't sleep, moved out to different hotel next day early morning. Hotel not worth 3 stars and smelly stains on the carpet and everywhere, even we had unknown bites. DON't fall for the free breakfast!!

As far as accomodating with the front desk but hotel was excellent. Customer service was not as welcoming. Front dest needs to be retrained on how to deal with customers especially on a long drive and checking in.

We stayed at the hotel during COVID and felt very safe. The staff was friendly and masked. I was given contactless options to check in and out. The room was clean and comfortable and the location is excellent. Highly recommend.
