The hotel is very nice. It is along the water and the views of the city are very nice. However, the parking is terrible. There is only valet parking at the hotel. There is no self parking available. The hotel "contracts" out the valet service. There is the problem. One day they could not find my car at all. I complained to the front desk, and they appeared concerned but could do nothing to help. I spent over an hour and a half waiting while they looked for first my keys (which they couldn't find) and then later my car. They seemed much less concerned when they found out I had a rental car. I guess if I was driving one of very nice automobliles being parked things might have been different. Finally, I found my keys myself. They keys were properly tagged and placed. I guess they couldn't read or something. Meanwhile I was late for an important meeting. I wasn't the only one with a "lost" vehicle that day. When I complained to the front desk upon check-out, all I received was a sigh. I forgot to mention that they charge $12 a day for this outstanding parking service.
