I guess every hotel runs down after a time, but when they charge three figures for a room, I'd like to see better upkeep.
We checked in recently due to a power failure at home and a heat wave. The hotel staff could not have been nicer, and they were quite efficient. Our room was nicely placed in the corner of the highest available floor, putting us well away from the noisy parties going on in their lower floors.
The room was serviceable, not outstanding. They provide all of the standard amentieis, but nothing above the ordinary. Upkeep problems included bathroom tile that needed re-grouting, a shower controller mounted upside-down so that turning to "hot" yielded cold, an extremely ugly and badly worn hall carpet, and an elevator that was trashed (perhaps from last night's partiers, and perhaps the hotel cleaning crew got the goop off the mirror and the litter off the floor later that day?).
Parking is in a public garage a little over a block away, or you may opt to have valet parking. The hotel validates your ticket so parking is free, but patrons should know that on weekends when there's a major event in the convention center across the street, available spaces might be a challenge to find.
We did not use the hotel restaurant on this visit, but on previous occasions we thought it was very good. Their breakfast/brunch menus have been excellent.
If you're visiting Dayton to do something near this hotel--say, at the convention center or the trendy Oregon district nearby--then location might justify the expense. But for a $100+ room, I'd like to see better maintenance and a more attractive decor. Perhaps a major remodel is on their agenda in the near future? I'd hope so.
