The room was adequate and reasonably clean, though a bit high-priced. Part of the hotel was under renovation and was rather unsightly.
However, this is the first time I have ever encountered a situation where the hotel would charge $15 per hour for a late checkout after the 11:00 checkout time (and I travel a great deal). I was astounded! There was no attempt to accommodate our request for one more hour, other than for us to pay. We ended up checking out early in the morning for our event rather than to return and pay the late checkout fee. To top it all off, although I could see the worker had put out some items for breakfast, he would not let me in at 6:00 because "Breakfast doesn't start until 6:30." Again, no effort to go the extra mile or to be helpful. I will choose some other accommodation the next time I am in town.
