From the moment we pulled up I should’ve known it was going to be bad. The valets/bellhops were standing around doing nothing and didn’t offer help. We went to our room to find it not ready at all; trash all over, bed Unmade, water on floor, etc. The next room was not much better; filthy bed with hair and dirt and only two towels. Paid extra for a city view with balcony that was covered in wet slimy mold. No hospitality and a big waste of money. Please for your sake look elsewhere.

I had an absolutely horrible experience at the DeSoto last night. My boyfriend and I were sleeping and all the sudden at 3am the top to the glass table in the room exploded. There was glass everywhere and my boyfriend cut his foot. I googled how this could possibly happen and it has to do with material that might be in the glass. The hotel was not helpful at all. They sent up someone to clean. He was super nice but it was clearly the middle of the night and the best solution would have been to give us a different room. They claimed they didn't have any and didn't offer any change in cost for the night. I do not recommend this place to anyone and will never be staying here again.

Jillian S., First and foremost, thank you for choosing to stay with us and for the feedback. As you may imagine, I am extremely concerned by the table shattering on it’s own, and hope to learn more details so we may share with the manufacturer. Thank you for sharing that our team was quick to respond to clean up the glass, and please know, our first step would have been to move your room, but we were sold out for the evening. Please feel free to contact me at your convenience. I am certain, given the chance, we can regain your confidence in The DeSoto. We hope to remain your destination of choice for all of your future visits to our beautiful city. Warm regards, Jay Wiendl Managing Director

The valets were awesome. That was the highlight. Was not aware when booking that only suites have a coffee maker. There is no fridge or microwave. They only gave us 1 washcloth and 1 hand towel for a double Queen room. Only two towels and no soap to wash your hands. We didn’t know this until 11pm when we went to our room. Tried calling for soap and towels and there was no answer to housekeeping and was put on hold at the front desk and no one came back on. We just wanted to go to bed at that point. Someone else’s hair on the pillows and under the sheet. When changing the toilet paper, someone’s medicine was behind the roll. If I had kids in that room, that could have been dangerous. And we couldn’t use the tub as the stopper was busted off. The wait going up to our room and downstairs too was a joke. The girls at the coffee place downstairs were nice and made a great cup of coffee. There was definitely maintenance that needs to be done, and if you aren’t going to remodel the bathrooms to match the rooms, at least make sure they’re clean.

Really nice pool area. It's amazing to get such a nice pool area in a town. Don't miss it at least for a drink. The rooms have been refurbished with hardwood floor. Looked clean. But pillows are far too thick, bathrooms refurbishment were skipped. Elevator door frames are ready for retirement. Our room was adjacent the elevators cage. We were hearing them going up and down: Definitively not a good pick. The worse part of this hotel is the service. Employees have not been trained to understand Customer expectations. Not ready to listen to Customer requests . Nice hotel when other hotels don't have any availability. FYI parking in streets is free during WE and from 08:00PM to 05:00AM
