Victor, us2 night trip with friends
Poor 2.0
I am not one to give bad reviews. However, we would not recommend this hotel. My husband and I planned an impromptu getaway this past weekend and we were extremely disappointed in the overall experience. For starters, we checked in and the room was dirty and the bed linens were ripped. We courteously requested to change rooms and the woman at the front desk was not willing to oblige at our first request. Loud, noisy guests slamming doors continuosly through the middle of the night, entrance doors to lobby didnt work, not up to standard in cleanliness, etc... i recommend staying across the street at the Palomar.

Very good 8.0
Great hotel, horrendous valet
Beautiful hotel in convenient location. Excellent bathroom and comfortable bed. Check in staff welcoming and accommodating. Travelled during covid, required temperature check not pleased but understandable. Valet parking was miserable, discourteous and it took between 20-35 mins to get vehicle. No text option to order car from room. And then they had the nerve to charge $59 PER NIGHT for this "convenience".
