We stayed at this property this weekend for my High School Reunion. Check in was pretty good, they told us they were sold out for the night & therefore she may not be able to totally honor our request for a quiet room on a high floor. She gave us a room on the 3rd floor (away from the freeway) LOCATION - PERFECT. Room #333.The room was just ok. The carpet had stains on it in front of the sofa, walls were dingy, furniture was updated but a little ragged. The bathroom tub had a small amount of mold. We unpacked & headed down to help decorate for our reunion.
After talking to others that were staying at the hotel, I found out that they all had safes in their rooms (ours did not). I had reason to want a safe, so we went to the desk to see why ours didn't & what we could do to get one. A different clerk said all the safes are on the fourth floor.... so, he upgraded us to Buisness Class, saying this was a better room.
We went back to the original room, packed everything back up & moved to the other room. This room 404, was the same as the other room in size, except it had a "foyer" (which was totally usless). It was a corner room, facing the freeway (which I didn't want). Again, the room was dingy, on one of the lamps the piping around the bottom of the lampshade had come partially off. The bathroom was large & no mold in the tub area. Several of the curtains didn't work. Didn't matter, we were there for our reunion, not to look out the windows. (View out one window was of the roof below us, chimneystacks & walls).
We unpacked & went to open the safe. It was locked & I couldn't figure out how to open it. I read the instructions.... but it wouldn't work. So, I called the front desk, they said they'd send someone right away. I waited about thirty minutes, I had to go back downstairs to my reunion.... so, I called the front desk again... told them I "HAD" to leave the room & that no one had come yet. She said they'd just come in & open the safe if I was gone. I WANTED to leave my belongings in the safe (that was the whole purpose of moving rooms, remember?).... anyway, I hid my belongings went to my reunion. We had a great time at the Reunion. The food was delishious! The Party room was great. Very pleased with that experience. Many hours later we went back to our room, only to find that no one had come to open the safe.... which was a mute point at this time...we're back in the room to stay now. Ugg.
There is one really negative about this hotel that they cannot fix, but it is a design flaw for sure. You check in at the desk in a HUGE, beautiful lobby. But the elevators, instead of being right off the lobby, are located way, way down a long & winding hallway. The hallway's carpet was loose in places, the walls were dingy like the room walls. There are all kinds of doors leading outside up and down the hallways... not the safest feeling. (Yes, you had to have a key to get in, but anyone could hold the door open for others to get in & the front desk would never know).
I just get the feeling that this hotel is LONG overdo a facelift. They just don't seem to take much pride in the property. Simple daily maintenence is all that is lacking. If it's broke, fix it. If it's dirty, clean it. If a guest has an issue, tend to it. Simple.
The beds are those horrendous Sleep Number beds............. hard as rocks, never can get them comfortable.
I don't think we'd stay here again. As far as a meeting facility, it's GREAT. The restaurants food is good too. We had a free breakfast at the buffet... it was very good & the service was good too. They restaurant managment is working... the hotel management doesn't.
Just my .02 worth....
