I stayed here from July 1 - July 3 and spent my 50th birthday here. Sadly, there were many problems...
1. Our room had a constant noise in it, which aggravated us so much that we asked what we could do. Apparently, there was nothing that could be done so we were moved to a new room (Yea!), and on behalf of the hotel, it was a better quality room (why this review is not 1 star).
2. Maid service? Come on, who wants people coming into your room and cleaning it? None. Nada. Someone came by asking if we needed towels on the last morning of our stay. Vacuum floors? Not necessary. If you can't stand maid service - then have I got the place for you.
3. In an effort to assuage our "bad fortunes", the staff (who seemed to try and help) gave us a coupon for free breakfasts to be used up until 11 AM. The next morning we go down at 9:50 AM - but they were closed for breakfast. Guess those were pretty worthless amenities...
4. Apparently there was some change in ownership on July 1st, and we were the guinea pigs for the new owners and we were the ones to pay the price...unfortunately, we didn't get any discounts or benefits - except for the ones not honoured by the hotel, anyway.
With this in mind, I would not recommend staying at this hotel for anytime in the foreseeable future...maybe if "other" guinea pigs have been there after then next 9-10 months and report that conditions are better, I would stay again (mainly for location)...but was very disappointed in most things EXCEPT for the staff that was there trying to be helpful...
