I hate to write this review, because overall, the hotel itself was very nice to stay in. The bed was comfortable. Everything felt new (as they had only been open about 3-4 weeks). The breakfast was not bad, had waffles, eggs, potatoes, your choice of cereal or breads and coffee 24 hours. The rooms were very nice, with the full sized fridge, microwave, dishwasher, silverware/dining material.
I literally had only one issue for the whole time there, and was very disappointed in the way it was handled. I understand the place is new and there are things that need to be done, but was it really necessary for them to be painting the walls outside our room until 1245 in the morning. Literally from 1130pm-1245am, we could hear the sound of the paint rollers moving up and down the walls over and over and over. We could not sleep. So finally at 1245, I called the front desk to complain, and they wrapped it up about 15 minutes later.
The next morning, I spoke to the manager on duty about how obnoxious it was that we had to call them to get them to stop. He initially asked if they stopped after I had called the front desk and I said yes about 15 minutes later. I asked why it was necessary for them to be working at almost 1am, in areas where people are trying to sleep. He replied, "To get it done." I'm a naturally sarcastic person, but this set me off. I hadn't had much sleep the night before and had to drive back to Colorado to get this guy's smart [--] remark. I was infuriated. Like I said, I understood that this is new hotel and that work will need to be done. But common sense says I shouldn't have to call and complain at 1am to get them to stop being loud outside a room where people are sleeping. I was so beyond angered with this, that I swear to never stay at this hotel again.
