I liked the staff person on duty when I checked in. I was there for a tour pickup. When I returned on Sunday night exhausted from a long day and before i called my cab I asked the woman at the front desk if I could please use the rest room i had checked out earlier that day. She said “no”. Discretion is the better part of valor. I am 68 years old. A Platinum Amex card carrier. I stay at a lot of hotels world wide. I will not come back to this one ever!!!!!!
See above note.
Location, location, location!!!! The hotel is situated in the center of the city. It’s within walking distance to many tourist attractions. The two concierge: Hans and Alberto were extremely helpful in booking travel transportation to my next destinations. Muchas gracias!!!!
I was not able to make calls for room service and to the front desk. I had to go downstairs when I needed something. The lockbox in my room didn’t work as well.
Bed was fine Bagged breakfast good Staff friendly
I booked online, staff couldn’t find it, Found one room but I had booked two Ended up charged four times for same booking. Am now disputing with credit card company. Also booked 94.00 ended up tax was additional 75.00
Great location of the hotel.
The bathroom didn’t work and the rate they wanted to charge for the room wasn’t the one in the reservation made via booking.
Great location, convenient parking, helpful staff
Decoration- or aesthetics wise, the hotel feels a trip down to the 70s or 80s memory line and probably it has not been updated or refurbished since that time. Breakfast was adequate but could have been better, few extra, continental breakfast options would be a great upgrade.
