This hotel is fine, if overpriced, but certainly not deserving of some of the rave reviews. Our room had peeling wallpaper (I meant to take a pic but hurried out the next morning and forgot) right over the headboard, greasy smears on the headboard and back of the door, hair in the shower, and the dustiest remote control I've seen. The room was also very humid and hot when we arrived, and the A/C did not manage to take care of the humidity during our stay. Yes, it was a hot day, but I do expect the temperature in the room to adjust after many hours of running the air conditioning. The front desk was polite if busy as there was a party taking place in the room off the lobby that seemed to demand a lot of attention. Overall, there are better places to stay in this area.
