I had more "issues" at this hotel than any other place I have every stayed. EVER.
I called in advance to see if I could get a refrigerator for my room. It takes 48 hours for someone to return your call, if they even return it. Never heard from them. Glad I packed my cooler.
My non-smoking floor room smelled like smoke. The hotel was full (of teenagers). I was hesitant to ask to be switched because I was on a quieter, preferred floor. They said they would send a maid up with some air freshener. Never saw anyone!
The bell hops NEVER gave us tags/tickets for our luggage and the hotel was packed. Valet service kept asking for a ticket. Very annoying.
I got to take a cold shower one morning. I really don't like cold showers! Especially on a business-oriented trip.
The rooms are ok, but in the bathroom there was "gunk" caked on the wallpaper and a dusty old fan that didn't work so it got nice and humid in there. I couldn't even stand to take my shoes off to relax.
The only pros I can think of are that this hotel is connected by a breezeway to the parking deck and conference center, so the location is easy for that. They seemed to be at capacity and clearly could not handle that amount of guests in their hotel. I did not eat or buy beverages inside the lobby, but the lines for coffee/restaurants/snacks were really really long. I only stayed here for location, and will go with my regular, dependable hotel group next time!
