I unfortunately booked this hotel for my wedding night. We arrived at the front desk in our wedding attire to a lone young man trying to answer all of the incoming phone calls for guest services. While waiting we watched the numerous drunk people get off of the elevators from functions in the upstairs ballrooms. After about the fifth phone call, the young man apologized and checked us in without so much as congratulations. We headed off to our room, only to let down by seeing how dated the whole place looked. The wall paper and carpet looked in need of replacement and the television looks like one I'd given away over a decade ago. The remote either needed new batteries or just didn't work properly. The only saving grace was that the bed was extremely comfortable. The next morning I grabbed breakfast in the broadway room. When I went to pay, I was told I was actually entitled to a complementary Sunday brunch. This would have been nice to know upon check in as at this point I just ate and my husband wasn't going to have brunch alone. He ended up eating elsewhere. The experience was a total let down.
