I picked this hotel because it was a boutique hotel, which allowed dogs and had a restaurant. However, the restaurant was not available because of a private party and there isn't another restaurant within walking distance. I've been gone all day working in the rain and now there isn't anyplace to go without taking a cab. I think the location would be better with other restuarant options which of course are downtown and if your going to book the restaurant have something prepared for the guests such as free shuttle service or something for the inconvenience. How about recommending a place to eat, other than Subway.
Of course they nickle and dime you with little charges, which includes room service and their lack of a restaurant is the reason for room service.
I am very disappointed, I think they should have notified guests of the above. I think service should be their number one goal and for a four star I feel like I am staying in a typical chain.
