Bitter sweet stay
Our stay here was short and bitter sweet. Pics are a lil misleading. The rooms were way smaller that expected. No refrigerator or microwaves in the rooms. Elevators small slow and stuffy. The best part about the stay was the location and front desk staff. We were in walking distance to a lot of places. The staff...They were all friendly and pleasant. Customer service from check in to check out was a 10. Even the Bellsman/valet guys were great. The worst part about the stay...Our housekeeper threw away our pizza from Giordano's. We were all very upset. We were looking forward to eating that good expensive pizza. Daniel the front desk worker that night compensated us. He was pleasant and understanding. He accommodated my family and we were satisfied with his help. I would book here again but not with more than 2 people.

The personnel was indifferent, and the elevators were in bad condition and dirty. The room was comfortable and clean, so my stay was okay.
