I cannot help but have a soft spot for this hotel. I first stayed here when I was 11 years old, and met Telly Savalas and Evil Knievel. Telly was actually swimming in the hotel pool, and I believe he actually passed away in his suite. As I walk through the doors, the feeling of pathos certainly overwhelms me even today, and I cannot help but love the place. That being said, there is certainly room for improvement, and I believe the hotel is working on it.
I always feel like a star when I am recognized for my loyalty and generally upgraded, or offered access to the club lounge - these touches go a long way to making one a loyal customer. However, certain aspects of the rooms in which I have stayed seem a little tired, and in need of a facelift. The couch was stained, and the furniture looked a little worse for wear. The bed was comfortable, and the lighting in the bathroom was better than most.
That being said, the service was exemplary, I was not hounded by housekeepers, the food in the club lounge was good and I simply enjoyed every minute of my time! I am a little biased, but if I need to stay in the area for meetings this is my choice every time.
