Nice staff but needs cleaning

We stayed overnight and had dinner at a nearby restaurant. Valet services and the other staff were great. Room was not very clean, notably the carpet had not been vacuumed and not all surfaces in the bathroom were wiped down. Hair dryer was not working. I would consider this place again only if the convention center hotels were full.

Poor management

Hotel and rooms are beautiful. Booked the "romance" package as it was our honeymoon. It was supposed to include a bottle of champagne waiting in the room and complimentary breakfast. No champagne waiting upon arrival. The restaurant was the bigger disappointment. Very disorganized. There were no breakfast vouchers so had to inquire multiple times about how to "redeem" our complimentary breakfast. We received no menus but witnessed other tables sat after us with menus. Our server basically pointed at the buffet inferring that was the only option. Buffet food was mediocre. Omelet station was okay. They were touching the ingredients with bare hands and/or using one spoon for all the separate ingredients. As we were checking out our server brought our receipt to the front counter to give to front desk Attendant...seemed kind of weird that she would need to leave the restaurant and walk across the lobby for any reason. Then we had to pay $25 for overnight valet. Like I said previously, the hotel and rooms look nice but overall a pretty disappointing experience.

Just Ok

Valet was great and very friendly. Room was very clean and comfortable. Room service was another situation. I called to get three meals and three cups of coffee. I explained to them that our coffee pot was missing a piece and they did not offer to bring us a working coffee pot or to give us coffee to replace the coffee we couldn't make. Maybe the room service is not directly affiliated with the hotel but the girl I spoke to completely ignored what I said about the coffee pot. She could have at least told me to call the front desk. She was kind of rude. The gentleman who brought up our room service was very nice, even though he only brought up two waters and two sets of silverware for three meals. I do not enjoy giving bad reviews, but when I'm spending $200 for one night, I would at least like to get a cup of coffee and enough silverware for my guests.

Customer service was terrible!

We were asked to pay an additonal rate of $250.00. Part of that was suppose to be for a refundable deposit. Although we had paid online they did not show the credit card information and we had to pay again. When we checked out the following morning and the error had been corrected no one apologized. There was not any offers of a discounted room for our I convince. The front desk was awful.
