Very good locatiom and hotel staff is super nice but pnly two elevators works.

We love the property and have stayed in the past. We don’t like that there is not balcony chairs. Our room was near a fire department so we slept very little. Last time, it was quiet.

Second time visiting this year. Nice rooms and amenities.

Too expensive for what We got. I believe I paid for a upgrade room and they give us any room

The view

Nice rooms.

Nice hotel the room was nice the inly bad qas the bathroom

Hotel was decorated with lots of Christmas decor with Christmas music. So nice to take pictures around the holiday season. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Check in was fast and easy, very friendly. I really liked Christmas decorations it brought our spirits up during COVID.

I liked the architecture of the building and the pool. I did not like the woman who checked us in. On several occasions I came down from my room to ask questions because when I called the concierge desk the phone rang and no one answered. When I asked her where the pool towels were she first said there were none and then she said they were behind the jacuzzi which was wrong. One of the guests helped me find them. She is not good with customer service and her accent made it difficult to understand her especially while wearing a mask.

The hotel's gym has a half court b-ball court! It was so much fun!

I have gone to the bar within the hotel previously and had a blast so I decided to stay here. Unfortunately, the first room was not clean and smelled like smoke. There were even ashes on the curtains. The second room issued was smaller than the initial and generally felt like a downgrade. The third room ended up working. As a 4.5 star hotel, I do expect these things do not happen and that there is attention to detail, including ensuring that scuff marks are taken care of. This hotel should be a 4 at the maximum. Our room had breakfast included and this was defintely nice. The breakfast was buffet style and included a variety of American style breakfast. Hard boiled eggs, donuts, bagels, fruits, cereal, breads, oatmeal, omelets, waffles, etc. The breakfast was was nice and enjoyable.

Terrible. A lot of hidden fees and they don’t honor the rate of when I reserved the room. Orbits prices are different from when you check in

Thank you for staying with us and sharing your feedback. We do no have chairs on our balcony due to the high winds in the city. We hope to see you again in the future,

Thank you for taking time to write a review. It's rewarding to learn that you find the condition of the room and facility very commendable. On the other hand, it saddens us finding out that your stay was anything less than satisfying due to the state of the bathroom at that time. We understand how you feel and we see the impact this had over your overall guest experience. We are doing the best we can to provide quality service and we sincerely apologize for any expectations we may have failed to meet. We appreciate the feedback and will use it in the further developments of the hotel in an effort to keep you and other guests happier on your future visits.
