9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Very accomodating and lovely hotel.
7.1 Good
Cons:Needs an update!
4.0 Mediocre
Cons:It’s just not very nice really at all, room wise.
6.0 Okay
Cons:Our room on the 16th floor which had a great view was right next to the elevator motors. One or more of the elevator motors had bad bearings or a worn armature as there were a constant hum and winding sound similar to a low police siren. We could not move due to the Hotel being full.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Great food, staff and service.
Cons:Valet took a little long.
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:I loved the large room! The space was great. Loved the airy feel.
6.0 Okay
Pros:The location was very convienent. I chose to park down the street and save $30 for over night parking. Nice pillows and comfy bed.
Cons:This hotel is really small the room was giving me an allegric reactions I could not breath, until we forced the window open. The shower curtain and shower smelled really bad. That was gross. I will not be staying here again.
10.0 Wonderful
Cons:Expensive mini bar, breakfast etc
7.4 Good
Pros:The staff and location were both excellent, the bar is also fun (and the reason I knew about the hotel to begin with). There sure are a lot of interesting chairs around! Room service was prompt and the food was tasty. The bed is comfortable and the rooms have pretty good noise control.
Cons:The rooms are in dire need of updating. We stayed in a studio so the size was good, but things just seemed old. The walls needed touch up paint, the bathtub was peeling (about a 10'' section was missing plaster), the grout was stained, the hair dryer must be from 1985, the thermostat is old making it hard to control room temperature, the faucet was probably really awesome 20 years ago, but now it is difficult to get it in the "off" position, not good in a state experiencing a drought.
6.6 Okay
Pros:Classy Good room service food
Cons:Hidden cost for valet parking - $52 a night Hidden cost for a 50 cent aux cord - $100 deposit Hidden cost for more than 5 glasses ordered for guests House keeping failed to clean my room one day when I called them before leaving for the day specifically asking them to tidy up No Hot tub or pool
