What a shame. The building has a beautiful exterior and the porch is absolutely lovely.
The problems begin when you walk in the door.
I was greeted by a surly front desk person. When I got to my "suite" (actually a large room), I found that the furniture and carpets were filthy - just as others have written.
The bathroom was also dirty and there were stains in the jacuzzi - why would anyone actually want to sit in a stained jacuzzi??
The place really is noisy. It seems the suites are booked up by large groups of rowdy kids who party all night. Why would they pay for seperate rooms when they can fit 4-6 in one suite? Calls to the front desk asking for help in quieting late night noise down from the next room and the room above me went unheeded.
So - if you are a spring-break type who wants to party and make noise and don't care about filthy rooms - the place is great. Too bad the management settles for this rather than make this potentially beautiful hotel a truly comfortable place.
