This is a fine, upscale hotel in the perfect downtown Stockton location - you can guess it by the hotel's name! All the reviews below are on mark - nice rooms, fine bar, great views, etc. You will be pleased to stay here.
My only gripe is that it seems the staff is 'in training'. We were 'greeted' by mass confusion at the front desk (the hotel also serves a upscale 'dorm' for UOP students) but they eventually worked thru the check-in process. The 'rack rate' was $159 but the staffer told me she could offer us $139...we thanked her and moved on. The morning experience of purchasing some snacks and stuff from the shop there was equally confused...I beleive she doulbe charged me (for the couple of bucks I wasn't going to worry about it). Then, upon check out we were charged $159 (I asked for a receipt and that led to a hunt of the paerpwork??) and was told that she couldn't 'fix' it and would have her manager do so. We rec'd two subsequent receipts by e-mail (two!) both at the $159 pricing!
I normally don't focus on the negatives when travelling (hey, it's part of the experience) but this first class hotel would benefit from a trained, competent staff. Fix that and this is a gem of a hotel.
