    Wonderful Modern Art Hotel

    We were in town for a wedding and checked out a few hotels online. We decided to book with Summit and we are so happy we did! This hotel was originally a parking garage that they converted in to a hotel and they did a FANTASTIC job. Our room was small, but the floor to ceiling and wall to wall window made the room feel massive. We loved having the curtain open and enjoying the view. Our bathroom was very large and spacious for the size of the room. The hotel is done in a modern art style, which we did not expect. There is still part of the parking garage that provides covered parking and entrance for their guests. We really appreciated this since it was rainy and chilly. The hotel staff was super friendly and attentive. The door to our room was difficult to open and shut and the door frame appeared to have a slight angle causing the door to get stuck, which we notified the staff at the front desk. It was a bit noisy for us, which we believe is caused by the steel and concrete construction of the hotel being a converted parking garage. We could easily here the people out in the halls and children running up and down the hallways. Nevertheless, we felt absolutely safe and were extremely impressed by the hotel and its staff. They do have a bar/dining located within the hotel, though we did not have the chance to enjoy this hospitality as we were extremely busy with family and friends! Thanks for the stay!!!

    Great place!

    All around great stay, especially for the money! The Parking setup was really nice, free parking and closed from the elements. Only problem we had was the air conditioning unit kept going on and off every couple mins. I tried putting it in manual so it would run nonstop but that didn’t do anything. I could have called down to the desk but we were so tired we didn’t want to worry about it. Other than that great stay!

    Very clean and beautiful property with great amenities. We were hoping for a better view, and wish the restaurant wasn’t closed, but we’d go back.

    Average with some big misses!

    When checked in, gave us our rooms keys, but when got to room beds were not made and room dirty. Then gave us another room and didn’t notice till all unpacked the heater didn’t work. It was freezing. The group I was with didn’t want to pack all up again and move due to convenience. Also- first hotel I have ever been to that doesn’t have coffee pots in the room. WHAT! Coffee pot is standard. Would not stay again.

    Nice but not outstanding

    The hotel has no pool, there was no microwave in the rooms nor available anywhere to heat up leftover food, the fridge was small, basically no kitchenette area for such an expensive hotel. The pillows were way too bulky, the mattress was mediocre. It appeared to have been a long time since the room had been dusted really well. Had to request cups and ice bucket, not already in the room like most hotels. The suite was very nice, had awesome windows all the way around 2 sides of the room, nice bathroom. All around was a nice room, and it was mostly clean, we had a very nice stay, but definitely lacking in some areas being a 4 star hotel with such high reviews.

    Not happy

    Pro...beautiful hotel, huge, up to date, in and out privliages. Cons...Our room was not clean. Found hair in the shower, on our towels, the pillow case had make up stains on it. The sheets were dirty. No microwave in our room. I guess I can say our stay was last minute, just needed to shower and sleep was not impressed or happy. I dont believe ill stay here again.

    Would Not Stay Ever Again

    I understand that service industries are short staffed in some areas because of COVID. However, The Summit was a big let down from the very beginning. When we arrived, we weren’t greeted at the front door nor was there a valet available. I was barely greeted upon entry by two staff at the front desk. I asked about a valet and was told there was none. I then asked if someone was available to help with luggage as we had a toddler with us. The guy working the desk offered to do it which was gracious but I thought they would have had specific staff for that. He helped and gave me the key card but didn’t wait for us. He just went to the room and left our stuff. Again this might be due to him not usually handling luggage. The room itself felt like a glorified hospital room that happened to have a king size bed. The tv wasn’t a smart TV but had chrome cast that was OUT OF SERVICE. If we wanted to rent a movie, it was 20 dollars. If we wanted to buy a show for our 2 year old, that was 15! The toilet paper was one ply. There wasn’t complimentary coffee in the room for the next morning. There also weren’t any robes for use nor a physical menu for room service other than breakfast. This may all sound petty but when you pay for a four star rated hotel (according to this app), you expect a certain level of creature comforts for the price. And this place is anything BUT luxury. Save your $ and go somewhere else. You’d probably have better amenities at the Holiday Inn nearby.
