I loved the stay and the employees are the best hands down.The bartenders Rocky and Princess was exciting and full of energy, i couldn't connect with Tarah the blonde bartender because she gets irritated at people for not wanting whine based liquors. i think that should be the first thing you tell people before they but a $8 mixed drink other then that incident she was nice for the most part. Also i really thought the front office girl christine and guy jean were perfect for the office atmosphere, they kept smiles on at all times and went out of there way to keep all the customers happy.of course the big guy Tony OR Tommy was great i dont know wat his job title is but he cooks ,bar back and i think hes the security because he makes sure the whole hotel is protected at all times, he comes in with a big smile and leaves with one the girls have nothing to worry about when the big guys on patrol lol. there was another guy there with long hair who also worked very hard but i didn't get a chance to speak with him i saw him set up early in the morning but when we got back later that day he was still working .The staff really does work all day and hard. Couple of things is rooms need to be updated rust on door handles and inside rooms old furniture problems after problems with the tv and wireless internet.i own a buisness and if you offer free wifi i think the managers should make sure it works I had to go out to the marriot. all tv's should have matching remotes because a panasonic tv with a zenith remote is not attractive it looks like a situation that was not taken seriously. One more problem i have is the big holes in the tables by the grill how long do you let them deteriorate before you actually spend a hundred bucks on new( wooden) tables.
