Basically, as soon as we arrived in our room, we quickly looked for somewhere else to go.
I will say that the lobby was jumping with people and it puts on a good front when you first get through the lobby. However...
Our room was in another building from the main building. To get there, we had to basically go under a garage/garbage storage area. Then when we got to our room, as soon as I opened the door and looked to my left I saw the bathroom with the severly stained toilet bowl that was running. As I walked further in, I noticed that the room looked old. The decor in my opinion looked dated and the room just looked old -lol. I will say the view was AWESOME!!! I can not stress that enough! However, I just couldn't do it. The staff decided to refund us our money (which they happened to charge us twice) and try to get us in to another hotel. My boyfriend and I was so disgusted that we just didn't want to stay at any hotel that was Sheraton affliated. So we left and stayed at another hotel chain. That was early in our week. We were told that we would get a refund, but when we checked on it the following week, we were told that the refund was not even sent for processing yet. Boo...
Parking is cheap - $6.00/ day, but you have to park it yourself across the street in a garage. I think that is reasonable for self parking.
Overall - I would never stay here, though I see people have given it good ratings. It isn't for me though - very loud and just not what I was looking for. I do appreciate all the staffs effort to make us comfortable and trying to be accomodating. Good customer service is hard to find so I must give credit where credit is due.
