Great place to take your significant other for a special occasion. Staff is wonderful, personal wake up calls, Chaz restaurant is very good for a hotel. I chose this location because my wife was staying for the first week; she loved it. Concierge level gets lobster or filet included for breakfast along with many other choices. Valet parking is included and the location is perfect for the wife shopping at the plaza, directly across the street.
So far, it's great, however I'm a business traveler and like the amenities of a large chain hotel. No pool, jacuzzi, buffet and the worst, maid hand washes the glasses in the room. Who does that anymore? Also since the hotel was built many years ago, the outer walls are not insulate to current standards. A cool current of air was omnipresent. Internet was slow and cable always had a few station with no signal.
Staff always would come and fix it, but what a pain!
