We hosted our son's 15th birthday party by booking two adjoining party rooms, made arrangements for food, a big screen TV and speakers for music. Plus, the pool and jacuzzi were nearby for easy access. In addition we booked two adjoining hotel rooms so some of the kids could spend the night. We also tried out the bar/restaurant and found excellent service there as well.
The hotel was very busy on this Saturday in March but the front desk staff quickly checked us in and answered all of our questions. The warm chocolate chip cookies that you get upon arrival are always a welcome touch. The Banquet Manager was friendly and professional, asking questions along the way and promptly responded to our needs. Our hotel rooms were clean, comfortable and updated.
We did have a few concerns:
1) There's no WiFi at the property which is really inconvenient. We travel quite a bit and it is our expectation of any major hotel chain that it will be equipped with WiFi.
2) I felt that the quality of the food was not equal to the cost. There was plenty of food but it was average at best.
3) It took numerous calls to multiple numbers to track down the correct contacts to book this party. One person handles the food, while another books the rooms and yet another handles AV/audio equipment. Again, all were super friendly and easy to work with but it took quite a bit of coordination on my part to get everything booked. Rather, just one person should handle everything on their end.
Would we book another party? Maybe but I hope they address some of these concerns first. I would definitely spend the night there as it is conveniently located near The West End shops/restaurants and the hotels are a fantastic value.
