“Never Fails to Disappoint”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

As usual, this hotel never fails to let us down. Rooms have gotten better as the place has been redone. Rooms are very small by today's standards. This years debacle? The pool is still just disgusting. It was of hair and dirt on the floor of the pool and on the deck. This years shocker--puke in the pool. A little girl threw up in the pool and the front desk was immediately notified. 45 minutes later still no closing of the pool or cleaning. A maintenance guy just happened to come by but had no idea. They NEVER closed the pool! This has to be against health laws in addition to being just plain gross. We stay here a few times a year for various kids events. It ALWAYS lets us down but we have not other options.

Dear Travler,

Thank you for taking the time to share you feedback about our pool. Our logs indicate that the staff closed the pool upon notification and immediately followed our protocol to shock and disinfect the area. It was unfortunate that his happened and we apologized to all of our guests that were counting on using the pool while it was closed. I appreciate you bringing it to our attention and look forward to your return.

Yours in Hospitality

My boyfriend named our own price and got this hotel and were booked into a standard room. We spent an overnight here for a Sabers game and were really wowed by the hotel. The lobby is beautiful and modern. We upgraded to a king for only $20 and our room was great. It was a little outdated but clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: book a regular room and than just ask for a king upgrade.

Dear Traveler;

Thank you for your positive review. We are all very excited about all the changes going on around here. We are returning to our glory days of the Premier Downtown hotel. Our Red Card discount program will save travelers 20% off your next stay as well as 20% off parking and food and beverages in our Deco Restaurant. As the weather breaks taking a walk to the waterfront can be exhilarating.

Yours in Hospitality

I stayed there for a workshop recently. I had stayed there previously and noticed a big decline in quality

The room looked like it was updated, but had some obvious damage in need of fixing. There was a hole in the bathroom door that looked like it was kicked in. The room was also facing the highway and there was a considerable amount of noise from traffic at night. The machine that dispensed the laundry detergent had no indication of it being broken, but lost a dollar and had to go down to the front desk to get my money back. I was given a box of detergent and it seems like this has been an ongoing problem.

The major issue with quality was the food. High prices and low quality food. Even one of the wait staff said there was only one dish that they would ever eat. We were given vouchers and despite this, I was always having to spend money over the voucher. The breakfast buffet was at a high price, but had the same boring choices. With the price at $14, you would think there would be real eggs and not the liquid egg product.

Finally, just to round it out, despite a checkout time at noon, i was awoken at 8am to a frantic knock from housekeeping wanting to know when I am leaving so they can clean my room. Overall, I cant complain too much as much of the food and lodging was covered by my organization, but if I were a paying customer, I would stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: Not facing the road

we have stayed several times here on bidding from priceline

cant believe to get a room for 55 dollars

hockey nights are busy but the rest of the time it seems empty

they have done some renos and is a little fresher

BUT get a room across from the elevators!! why?? the end rooms and those facing west have lovely noise from the freeways and you wont sleep

people complain but this is not the waldorf

but its clean, parking is cheap and simple food is medium

but the taxi service they use is lousy!!! they are always late if they are not there

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the property. I appreciate your feedback about our local cab company. I will address your concerns with them as well. I know that during special events at the arena and the ballpark they get very busy. another great feature about the property is we are just a few blocks from both venues. many of our guest enjoy the short walk to the events as well as the waterfront. We look forward to your return and we appreciate your business.

Yours in Hospitality

The staff is not helpful, the rooms r cramped and dirty, the service is slow add to that the cost to stay! They need a overhaul in everything to at least be a 3 star hotel! The quality of some of the 2 star hotel might get them ashamed of themselves. I knew the reviews were not great but I wanted to take a chance! Well I must say all my fear came true !!

I can't even begin to describe how horrendous our stay was at this hotel. Rather, I'll save you the details and sum it up by saying: ugly/worn rooms, cheap linen/towels, rude staff, loud and feels a bit unsafe staying there (seedy area too). Fire alarm blasted at 12:30AM. The entire property reeked of marijuana smoke.

Unless you get one amazing deal, there are much nicer properties with greater value in the area.

Dear Netgeek;

I was disappointed to read your review. We have really worked very hard at improving every aspect of our property, spending several million dollars in renovations. Adding rooms on the executive level that include Ipod docking stations, large screen TV's and so much more. Our Deco Restaurant was completely renovated just finishing last February. It was unfortunate that a local University event spoiled your evening. We are addressing this situation with them and appreciate your feedback and apologize for your experiences. I hope you will have the opportunity to return and give us the opportunity to renew your confidence.

Yours in Hospitality
