4.5 star hotel in a fantastic location
Rooms were very nice and modern and had floor to ceiling windows. I really liked the design and the rooms are designed creatively so each room has somewhat of a corner window. The shower was also very nicely designed and roomy. The atmosphere of the hotel was excellent. Elevator music and pool music were all excellent. There are pool parties on Saturday afternoons, I guess it's a good thing or a bad thing depending on what you're looking for. It was a little too "college-y" for my tastes. I would have preferred something a bit more "lounge-y" but that's just personal preference. If you're planning on enjoying the pool, don't go on a Saturday as everyone is packed in like sardines.
Front desk staff was not very helpful upon first arriving. There was a line and a 2nd staff member came up and stood at her desk. She looked right at us and then proceeded to just stand there. It took us asking if she was open to get her to help us. Also, they need to update their in room audio systems, they were only compatible with iPods and iPhones with the old 30 pin connectors. Seriously guys? That was 4 years ago. Use a more standard format like audio line in or Bluetooth so everyone can enjoy. Water pressure in the shower was not the greatest. It was barely even coming out toward the end of my shower.
Bad Customer Service
The location was solid. Right in the middle of all the clubs and bars. The concierge was wonderful. She rocks. B
The Mega Suite and the additional rooms were dirty. It was pretty gross. Stains and uncleaned furniture. The customer service was the worst I've ever experienced. We had a bachelor party and spent well over $5000 for two nights...you'd think they would go out of their way to make us feel special...complete opposite. They treated us like we were in junior high. They showed up with security guards to the Mega Suite (which is like a rockstar's second home) and made us leave because we were too loud. Keep in mind it was ten guys playing beer pong in a very large room (harmless) and the club downstairs was going full blast...strange that we were being too loud (we weren't). Initially they wanted to kick us out with no refund, but I kept calm and talked them down even though we were doing nothing crazy. At the pool, they treated us like crap as well. It was very odd. The whole staff out there felt super entitled...it was so lame. I've been to a decent number of clubs and the attitude here was bad...definitely the worst for a hotel. Had I known you can't hang out in the biggest "party" suite and actually party...I would have gone to a different hotel. Make that clear before people stay at your hotel. Finally...news flash...you're a hotel, not a club. You're goal is make your guests feel welcomed, not harassed. The GM at this hotel was the worst of them all. Time for the W chain to clean up management at this place. He has let this hotel fall to 1-2 star level. Absolutely awful.
