My husband & I were celebrating our anniversary on the day of our reservation. When we checked in, I was also surprised with a bottle of champagne and 4 chocolate covered strawberries as part of the "Romantic Package" that my husband had secretly requested too. That's about where the good part of this story ends.
We had to have maintenance come up because the room got really hot by 8pm. They're fix was to turn the air (which was only heat) off and order up a box fan. We received 2 admission tickets to the blues bar that opened at 8:30 (we got there about 8:40) and it was already full and we could stand in line to get in if we wanted to (we didn't). Went to the upstairs bar instead and ordered food from the restaurant. Of that food, we got mainly chip crumbs with our nachos, couldn't order onion rings because they were out, and had to order seasoned fries quickly if we wanted the last order (when we got these, there were a few fries mixed in with cubed breakfast potatoes).
The next morning, our room was 83 degrees at 8am. Our breakfast in bed that was part of the romance package didn't ever come, and my husband finally called at 9:20 to see where it was (was supposed to be delivered at 9am). At that point it was so hot in the room we didn't even want to stay to eat it. So, we checked out with sweat dripping down our faces and a $20 "unhappy guest" credit. Didn't feel we should have to pay for that romance package at all, so are waiting for a call back from the manager. We don't recommend staying here at all.
