Loved the service. Smart people who seem genuinely interested in making your stay convenient and comfortable. Great decor. They have renovated in one respect that was really annoying, however. In an attempt to be high tech and paperless, there are no guest books that explain about the hotel restaurants, and there was no clock -- just a small tablet-type device that worked the first night -- after much feeling around trying in an attempt to know the time... Next day, it was out of juice apparently, despite my replacing it on the cradle. What a hassle. One has to have a personal, charged phone to know the time. The TV wouldn't turn on and had to get engineering up. Was interested in room service, but no menus, just this device that was not working. No list of channels. Had to get one sent up. No movie on demand service either, so if you choose to leave your laptop at home, no movies without commercials and no choices or way to share a film in the room with your family. While I understand not wanting clutter around the room, the lack of information was really inconvenient -- even for someone who is accustomed to using digital devices. I can only imagine what it would be like for people who have never used tablets.
