The Hotel only has Valet parking which we were persuaded was the way to go, because parking anywhere else, even though is was Friday after parking meter hours, "might cost us an overnight fee of $5". We later discovered this is not true. We assumed, since it is the only option, that parking was part of our room fee and we were surprised to find a $15,- plus tax on our bill the next morning. But worse was the general management of the place: we were first put into a miserable run-down room next to the elevator and the ice machine. Requesting something more quiet we were moved a few rooms down, which was still grimy and run down but more quite. In the morning, we could not for the life of us discover how the switch the water from the faucet to the shower head. It took three calls to reception to finally learn that the trick was to pull the little ring on the bottom of the faucet which looks like part of it down, by which time we had gotten dressed and just wanted out of there. Also, every time we used the elevator, we ran into maintenance workers and housekeeping carts and overall we felt more of a bother than guests. We chose the location because it was listed as the closest to down town. This is not true: There are a bunch of hotels closer which we will try out next time. A good word for Angeline would checked us out and issued a credit for that parking fee. She was very friendly but being the first person to do so, we had already decided that was our last stay there!
