We returned to this hotel again this year because it was such a surprise hit during the Comic Con convention last year. Last year the hotel was under renovations and we had a great time. Service was fantastic and so was the hotel. This year we felt let down. The front desk staff was amazingly over-the-top fabulous. No complaints there. The so-called free breakfast sucked. My husband and daughter went down right when they opened at 6am and there was no one there. There were exactly 6 pieces of bacon in the warmer and it was never refilled. When I went down to breakfast at 9am, the line was long and there was no bacon. Did they run out of bacon at 6am? The eggs were runny and the staff at the restaurant was sub-par. They had no problem pushing you out of the way to replenish food without saying "excuse me". The buffet area needed to be kept up better. It was not welcoming at all so we didn't bother to go back the second day. We paid for breakfast elsewhere.
Note to whoever designed the new rooms. The light at the entrance needed to be centered a litle better so that if you are looking at yourself in the mirror, you can see better. The light was awful and it was of no use when trying to get ready in the morning.
The internet was non-existent. We had free wi-fi but the signal kept getting lost on both our laptops and our ipads. It was very frustrating so we switched to the 4G network when we needed to access the internet.
It would be nice to have some sort of door stopper on the bathroom door to let the room vent when taking hot showers. The door kept slamming shut and we had to put something there to get the door to stay open.
I loved this hotel last year and gave it a great review but I don't think we will be coming back here again. For $200 per night I could have stayed someplace nicer.
