We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during the Art Deco festival.
Unfortunately we had already stayed at the Beacon, 2 doors away, and we were hoping for a similarly terrific experience....we were VERY disappointed!!
To be fair, the room was clean and fresh and nicely decorated and furnished. The bathroom was small but clean and functional.
The thing which lets this hotel down completely is the attitude of the dek staff. They are surly, unhelpful, argumentative, borderline agressive, dis-honest and frankly couldn't care less if you have a problem.
The safe in our room did not work. When I reported this to the desk I was given various excuses and, to be frank, lies, as to why that was and what was being done about it. The true answer was nothing and they really didn't care. They just wanted me to go away and stop bothering them. After receiving a 'Guarantee' that the safe would be fixed the next day...guess what....it wasn't fixed! The desk staff did offer that we could staple our passports, cash reserves and other valuables into a manila envelope which they would keep behind the desk...but frankly I wouldn't trust these people with my half empty bottle of inexpensive shampoo let alone my passport and crucial valuables. So we ended up carrying all of our valuables around with us for the entire weekend...thanks guys...your attitude really stinks.
I thoroughly recommend that you do NOT stay at this hotel.
