I am a seasoned traveller and priority member and have stayed at this hotel many many times over past 6 years. I am sad to say it has been continually going down hill and this stay was the worst! I arrived Sunday eve after flying all day from the west coast. I was tired, hungry and thirsty. Upon check in I was told that there were some changes to the hotel. The restaurant was closed. Breakfast in the morning would be in the lobby. The bar was closed and my only food option for the evening was delivery pizza. I did not have a car and nothing food wise is close walking distance. I expressed my frustration wondering why hotel had not emailed me to alert me of this, as i stay here so often, The front desk said they would upgrade my room. They did but I was right next to elevator so I heard it all night. Next evening the bar open but no food and no one in bar. I asked and all the regular bartenders had been let go. The new bar tender told me hotel had been purchased and was changing into a clarion property. Last nite bar open and I was told there was food. But, it was only packaged food from a microwave. So delivery again. Years ago, restaurant was open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Then only breakfast and dinner, then only breakfast now it is closed. Perhaps clarion can make much needed improvements to entire property. I think I will give them time to do so before I consider staying here again anytime soon.
