We booked non-smoking rooms way ahead of time but were assigned to a smoking room that we were told they were trying to sell as a non-smoking room by treating it with sprays. To give credit where it's due, the front desk was very helpful and found a non-smoking room for us (despite the hotel being fully booked) which was... More

Not a bad hotel but the food was terrible! I was here about 8 years ago and the food was spectacular! They must have a new Chef who worked at Denny's before coming to the Hotel. Thank goodness there are tons of other places to eat around the Hotel.
