Horrible experience involving my credit card. Staff blamed me for losing my card when it was later discovered that the card was buried in one of their bill folds. Staff became very defensive management elected to stand behind the staff when they were wrong. Really could have been handled more professionally. One waitress blurted out very aggressive statements that was completely unprofessional. Never coming back and recommend to others NEVER to let your credit card out of your site! Most likely a PCI violation regardless. Ownership needs to reevaluate its management.

There are many pluses to this hotel but there are also some very definite minuses depending on the room that you’re in. One plus is the friendly and helpful staff from the valet to the front desk to the housekeepers. The room comes equipped with some very good coffee and the coffee down at breakfast is also excellent as are the hot sandwiches; breakfast also comes with yogurt and assorted fruits and cereals. The location is also a plus,very walkable and across from the bay. Lovely bathroom with a claw foot tub and thick towels. Unfortunately the minuses were also many. As others have said our first room was very dark and very noisy, there were many windows in the room however all of them overlooked very run down areas that I think were probably utility places. You had to strain just to see the sky. The bathroom overlooked a parking garage and I think the hotel generator or air compressor which was very noisy. People started working outside repairs before 8AM. The air conditioner was also very noisy with an odd thumping sound. We were given another room which was much better. Also, the hall carpeting was very stained.

The only plus was the location of the hotel but not worth it for the price of a poor room which was so dark we needed to use our flashlights. Hint: bring brighter light bulbs! The desk was old, the wood chipped, the carpet stained. There were no chairs in the room, no refrigerator. The toilet did not work properly. The top door lock did not work. The room was noisy, with only a view of a wall and above the entrance and corridor leading the roof-top elevator. This and the fact we were unable to go the The Canopy took away from our first highly anticipated outing since covid. I would have expected all of this from a cheap hotel but not from a high price place. I'm really sorry about this as I anticipated loving this place.
