In town for a concert that was less than half block from the hotel so location was perfect. Had a corner room but had to pay extra for it despite confirmation of price prior to arrival...but it was a great roomy space with 2 queen beds. Valet parking great....but clearly they don't want you to eat while staying there..or if they want you to eat they want you to do it somewhere else. Limited hours for the grill, understaffed wait staff in the bar area who do what they can but each has only 2 legs and arms for a crowd of people. Then show up in the grill for breakfast at 10AM and told I need a reservation for breakfast..would have been nice if that was mentioned at check in. Great place to stay but don't expect to eat at your convenience at any place inside the hotel. Perhaps room service was good but didn't utilize this but if I went back I now know thats the only way to assure you get fed.When the desk clerk is offering to show you the menu of another hotel near by that should be a CLUE to management you have some areas for improvement!
