We booked the hotel for our wedding anniversary and was expecting a three star facility where we can relax and be at peace. They have accessorized it compromising the utility factor. We would have rather had tooth paste instead of crown ceilings.
Though the main hotel is nice, we were pushed off to the side building which was not as good as we thought it would be. It was a tiny room and with two beds eventhough we had requested for a single King bed. Definitely not worth it for the price we paid. On top of that, you need to pay 17$ for parking and for us that was a first. We have never paid for parking as a hotel guest. And there was no free internet, which basically sucks especially when you are travelling for more than two days. Even in the hotel lobby, wifi was charged-thats ridiculous.Plus, the location is not exactly close to the waters. I suppose being in downtown runs the prices high.
On a good note, the house keeping staff was good and prompt always.
