I did many hours of research and decided to stay at the Island Hotel for 4 days. The hotel is beautiful however; it's slowly began to show it's true "colors". Thought the hotel is beautiful, it is out of touch of our modernistic times that it became greatly inconvenience and a mistake in staying here. 1 - I booked through Expedia, (Expedia fixed this after I complained) there is NO public parking or self-parking ONLY valet parking at $32 a stay over or $16 per day. These fees were not indicated while I booked, it was actually misleading, Expedia pointed blamed to the hotel, need less to say, I got nowhere with the hotel or Expedia. 2 - There is NO Internet in the rooms unless you pay $12.95 for 12hr use and WIFI is another $12.95 for a 12hr use. 3 - There are NO vending machines for any beverage including water. You would have to drink tap or spend $8 for a bottle in the mini bar. 4 - The bed was so old, it was indented on one side as if an elephant slept on it and yes I complained to the hotel and they just said, " we’re sorry". 5 – I spoke to a officer driving by, I asked if it was ok to park on the street overnight, the officer stated yes. The hotel and valet disagreed and will try to make you feel that you’re taking a great gamble parking on the street. I did so for the last two nights and all were fine till I checked out. Supposedly they can only charge parking when the valet logs you in & out but, I was charged 4 nights overnight parking. The front desk employee made me feel like I was lying and I had to get a little abrasion with him, that I should not be charged, he eventually said “we’ll waive this one time”, I then got real upset and had him prove to me I used all 4 nights, he couldn’t and then admitted to their mistake. So, yes it’s a beautiful hotel in a very nice location however, Be Ware of ALL Charges and facts before booking. If all this doesn’t matter to you, your going to love this hotel!
