The free espresso drinks made my mornings, and Jennifer at the coffee bar was always cheery and remembered our favorites! Restaurant seemed understaffed (especially during breakfast) but might have just been our group's surge timing. The rest of my stay was pleasant and hotel staff were nice.

Was here for 18 days in February. Nice hotel, good food & drinks. Free coffee/espresso for guests (Thanks JENNIFER) . Nice view & soap selection. Con is that our group had a lot of problems with the billing / charges.

One of my favorite things about this hotel is the free coffee from the coffee bar every morning. Jeniffer made most of the coffee from my stay and she was always super friendly! The breakfast at the hotel was also always amazing.

This hotel has a nice lobby and restaurant bar area but that’s it. Lacks in customer service and response to issues. Hotel had a conference going on and felt the need to let the loud parties continue well into 1am that was connected to my room. After 5 phone calls and no attempt by hotel staff to get the party next door to stop they agreed to move my room but never stopped the party. I had to pack everything and cross over to the other side of hotel in a new room to get away from the noise. I spoke to the front desk staff who said they would refund my room. The next day the manager offered me a certificate to come back and refused the refund because it was booked thru orbitz. She said it was a group who comes every year and they normally don’t party that late? Why is this other hotel guests fault. The manager could have refunded me but refused for all the inconvenience. The lack of sleep and room cost me $170. I refused the offer for a certificate and left. Don’t stay here if you are on business and need a good nights rest. This is not the place to go. Rooms are also old and dated.

Dear Guest, We strive to provide excellent service and an enjoyable and relaxing stay while your staying with us.

Please feel free to contact us direct to discuss in more detail.

I recently visited Hotel RL.for a conference. good mix of old and new, very nice. Loved the wood vinyl floors in the rooms.Clean and nice. The staff were great, the catering crew were very good and organized. I did catering mgmt for years, these people were great! Carol, Josh, Mike, Michelle, Julie Ace, Chuy, Fizzo, Jason, Ryan, Amber, David Jessica Gabby Korine. I didn't ever get any bad or snotty attitudes the entire weekend. Very hard working crews. I would recommend using this hotel if you ever need a place for a conference and or large meeting space. We had over 200 people took everything they had. They opened up and closed up many spaces in a limited time between meals and small meeting rooms. Thanks to all of you for your hard work!!
