We liked the hotel, didn't love it. It was as described, I wish I had checked it out more before booking.
Right in the center of things.
Nice room/beds, clean, etc.
$10+ per day to park +valet tips.
No typical amenities like gym/pool.
Late night/evening staff somewhat disinterested/dismissive
The complimentary wine/cheese afternoon and milk/cookie night events were nice.
The complimentary breakfast was sufficient and filling.
The roof top tables/breakfast area has high walls for safety so though there is a nice view, its not like you can see it while enjoying your breakfast.
We booked two rooms for 7 people, my wife and I and 5 children, I specifically listed the number of people and ages on the reservation, yet they put us in one room with two queens and one with a king. When it should have been obvious we required two rooms with two queens each. They offered to change it our second night but we were already settled in so we made do.
We left a small stuffed animal behind, they offered to ship it back, shipping was $12.
This is not a great place for families or kids in my opinion.
