We are staying there for 2 nights. So far, we're 1 night in. All of the personnel are exceptional - the valet service is superb. Based on the website and reviews, we were expecting much more. The hotel itself looks like it should be grand. It seems they are advertising a somewhat upscale experience, but there is nothing upscale about our experience thus far - the décor, although somewhat decent not really upscale-ish. Simple. Really pissed that the website is highly misleading regarding the overall nature of the hotel, including amenities. The elevators are super small. The room is pretty spacious. The bed is super comfy. Unfortunately, there is no microwave or fridge, which is the total opposite of a true suite experience. Days Inn or Motel 6 will at least offer those in their crappy rooms. The bathrooms are mediocre, definitely not a 'wow' or 'oh that's nice!' It took about 10 mins or more of the shower running before we had hot water. You can hear every flush and any water usage of your neighbor through the pipes in the walls. Our toilet was loud and leaky, but they fixed it right away. The drink reception or 'happy hour' as they call it is undesirable - it's literally only an hour. The bartenders and severs provide good service. FYI - only a 2 drink max of either a horrible house wine or cheap beer during the hour. During the complimentary breakfast, the only hot items were the oatmeal, coffee, and whatever you put in the toaster. But it was still good nonetheless with tasty pastries and fruit. Location is great, downtown beside theRenaissance Grand. Overall, it's okay but factor in the price and "amenities", definitely not a good value. It's great that they're new and still under construction, that way they can step up their game and actually be a real competitor with their tried and true neighbors. The hotel has amazing potential, just wish they would get there a bit sooner.
