I booked this as it was my partner's birthday and assumed that the price I paid of £253 ($425) for the night, would give us something above the average. Sadly It didn't even match what I had paid £65 a night for in various motels on this trip.
The view wasn't bad but the room was small. The fully mirrored wall did nothing to change the size or the perception. The window frame was broken and the AC control box was detached from the wall and only hanging on to the wires dangling out of the wall. When I mentioned this I was asked if I'd raised this with anyone. My answer was why didn't they know already? Were their staff that uninvolved with the company?
The next morning we left a do not disturb sign on the room, went out quickly and came back to find somebody had been in and left a breakfast tray in there. This despite being told they would knock and leave it outside. Not a major issue, but another example of left and right not knowing each other.
We asked for some sort of tea / coffee maker to be bought up, as there was not one in the room. We were told 10 minutes. An hour later a percolator and one cup appeared - for the 2 of us. Fortunately we had been travelling with some spare mugs and used one of them. That disappeared when we turned our backs and the breakfast tray was taken away.
The swimming pool is next door at the YMCA. They wanted $65 to park the car. 50 yards away there was a secure multi story park that cost us less than $20. Meals were in rooms. The whole thing felt like a charade. We spent the next 3 nights in a luxury apartment overlooking this hotel. It cost a third of what we paid for this place and felt 100 times better.
There' s a fair chance we will not return.
