we have stayed at the Hotel several times and were never told about the valet parking or the so called free parking a block away unless they mean the parking garage two blocks away on the top, uncovered. Christmas weekend my 70 year old husband had to walk to the parking garage up three flights of snow covered stairs in sub-zero weather to get out car.
As usual, our room was less than pristine. Dust everywhere, long black hair on the bathroom floor and I had to take the bed apart and re-make it. It was made so badly, I wasn't sure it had been changed from the last guest.
On the plus side, the Hotel is beautifull, the walk to the garage is wonderfull in the summer, and the young lady working in Seattle's Best Coffee Christmas morning made my day. She was very nice and helpfull.
Will I stay again.......yes, but in the summer and hope the Housekeeping Supervisor acutually does a room check.
