My wife, daughter, mother and I recently stayed here because I had signed up for a continuing education conference which was held here, so I had no choice but book this hotel.
The hotel is surrounded by several other properties, so just finding the entrance is a challenge for a first-time visitor. Once to the front door, I noticed a sign stating that valet parking was $18.00, but I was relieved to discover that this is optional. What is not optional is a $10.00 + tax per day parking fee. .
The room was clean but plain. The two beds were very tiny as was the television. Queen sized beds would have been much more comfortable.
Internet service is about $15.00 per day or about $40.00 per week. Even the business center charges for internet service. The on-site restuarant was way over-priced at about $30.00 per meal per person. Ridiculous.
I think they were getting ready to hang meat in the conference room because it was so cold. Almost everyone in the meeting was complaining about being cold. Not until the final day of the conference was the temperature comfortable.
Every night, just as we all were dosing off to sleep, the people that lived in the house next to the hotel set off very loud fireworks for 30-45 minutes. Nice.
On the plus side, the pool area was very nice and clean, the front desk staff was pleasant and the elevators were speedy, but we will be looking for conferences being held elsewhere next year.
