We have stayed at this hotel several times before, but it is now showing its age and seems neglected. Our room had an Analog tube TV (who still uses tube TVs in 3 1/2 * hotels????), the carpet had obviously not recently been vaccumed and was badly stained, the business centre computer keyboard was virually unreadable with the letters worn off, and the bathtub drain plug did not fit, wo we could not take a bath and had to be satisfied with showers. The bathroom did not even have space to place two toilet bags.
The ice machine, which was on another floor, was not working so we had to drudge up another 2 floors to another ice machine, the maids left the bedside lamp unplugged (too lazy to re-plug after vaccuming) so we had to move furniture to replace plug. Housekeeping management needs to improve checking on the work of their staff. All in all a disappointing stay in what we remember as a very nice hotel in a very attractive location.
And let's not forget a $10 per night parking fee.
