The property is nice and well kept. There is plenty of space in the rooms. And every room has a view of water.
From those good beginnings, the rest goes downhill. First, I called because plans changed and I needed to extend my reservation. The person who answered the phone was unwilling to answer a single question directly about cost or availability. After 15 min, I decided to book elsewhere. It just wasn't worth it. According to two other colleagues who were also staying here, they called to ask about bringing spouses and staying an extra day. Their experience was identical. Second, the scheduled shuttle to the airport (I'm not sure if this is routine or a service coordinated by the meeting I attended) was not there until 30 minutes later. My friend was in serious danger of missing his flight. Third, the HVAC unit closely resembled a tent adjoining O'Hare airport -- loud and intermittent. Everyone complained of the same issue; so, I know it wasn't just my room. Finally, and most seriously, everyone needs to check their bill CLOSELY before departing .The waitresses added to tips. There were extra charges on my bill and those of at least 4-5 others. Poor service coupled with dishonesty is completely unacceptable.
