My boyfriend and I stayed here this past Saturday. It is a nice hotel, a little high on the price but compared to others around it was a good deal. I saw others comment on the carpet staining. I did notice that but nothing that was too bad to ruin my stay. Luckily there were 2 queen beds in the room we had. On one of the beds decor pillows had a mysterious white stain that should have been noticed and cleaned. We did not complain or let it be known to the staff because the other bed was fine and we didn't want to make a big deal. The elevator is very slow but again not a big deal.
The check out time in noon which I think is great! The only thing that put me off about this place was how rushed they seemed to be to get us out of the room. I understand there is a check out time and they need to get the rooms cleaned BUT we were on our way out of the room at 12:03 ( I looked at my cell phone) and someone knocked on our door to make sure we were leaving! The cleaning cart was all the way down on the other end of the hallway so they weren't needing to clean our room right away. 12:15-12:30 I can see someone knocking on the door because some people over sleep but 3 minutes! Come on!
Another thing that irritated me was when we were getting off the elevator to leave one of the housekeeping ladies was yelling loudly on her cell phone in Spanish or whatever language she spoke. That was rude and uncalled for.
The Peddler beside the hotel is AWESOME. It is expensive but worth it for a special night.
Have mixed feelings about staying here again. Not sure if I will or not.
