Booked online, did early check-in online, picked up key at the kiosk beside the front desk...everything was almost effortless. We requested early check in as we were here for a charity function on a Saturday night. Got ready in our gorgeous room decorated with a light western flair. My only issue with the room was the lighting in the bathroom was very, very dim (hard to put on make-up)...yes, there is a light-up make up mirror but not everyone is used to those and I did not care for that at all :( Shower pressure and hot water was wonderful and they have the most wonderful, soft, huge bath towels! Not rough and small like other hotels. Our tv sound also fluctuated going high then low...did this on every channel.
The Texas Ballroom was large and gorgeous requiring very little decorations for our gala. After our party was over, we went to the Whiskey and Rye Bar for drinks and encountered yet more very pleasant hotel staff.
The most truly obnoxious thing was the $25 overnight valet parking fee. Absolutely ridiculous!!!!! I guess they know they've got you there...downtown parking is tough.
