I agree with reviewers who commented on the "musty smell" of their room. However, we opened our window, ran the a/c and when we returned the room was considerably fresher (perhaps the hotel should consider trying this prior to assigning rooms).
I agree with some reviewers who suggested the dark, older furnishings could truly use a "refresh." I agree with reviewers who described the property as "older" and in need of "updating."
I disagree with reviewers who suggested the staff was less than professional and cordial. Our experience with every staff member we encountered was, at a minimum, pleasant and most were warm and extremely helpful. I regret I did not get the name of the desk agent who checked us in -- she was both efficient and personable. Carl, in the Concierge Lounge, is a true asset to those guests who have lounge access.
It's a shame the property has the tough part -- customer service -- conquered and are only lacking the easy part, capital investment to improve the physical plant. This is one of many properties owned and managed by a large hospitality group which would be well-served to invest in improving this property.
