I love the retro theme and thought that this boutique hotel would be very upscale. I had booked a terrace suite for one night as my wife and I were attending a wedding reception there. I thought that the terrace suite would be great for entertaining if anyone wanted to stay past the closing of reception.
When we checked in we got to the room and noticed empty glasses sitting outside the door. We then walked into the room and noticed a stain on the couch with a wet spot. Apparently housekeeping tried to remove the blue ink stain but could not. So, not sitting on that spot while it is wet.
The room was spacious, but the view was less than desirable (side streets and houses). One thing I did not like about the room was the exposed block wall construction. I know it is a retro hotel and modernized, but I am not into the industrial look. Looked like a high end prison cell.
After the reception we went back to the room and the empty glasses were still outside the door. My daughter who slept on a roll away said she heard someone picking up the glasses around 11:30pm.
For what we spent on the room I expected something a little more grand.
Last complaint was that were told by the wedding party that Valet was free for guests of the wedding - even the valet guy told me that, but when I check out I was charged the $14 for valet. I told the front desk that we were told it was free she said that it was not in her system. I just wanted out of there so I paid and we left the Hotel never to return.
I would have rather spent my money at the Marriott JW Desert Ridge (something we as a family are accustomed to stay)
