The hotel is lovely and the staff seemed nice. They did a good job coping with the problems a hotel will have in the city. But the front desk didn't explain local events (such as the gunfight in front of the hotel which was just a show) nor did they tell us what amenities were available. I found out from another reviewer that a daily paper was available! Most distressing was the lack of a decent elevator and no coffee pot. Yes, you could get coffee or tea for a price from the restaurant. But really, after trudging up and down 4 flights of stairs 3 times a day, I really didn't want to do it one more time. I am glad I went - they were generous with breakfast, at least - but for $250 a night, I expected more.
