We stayed at the Park Vista Mon. through Fri. nights.
My wife had warned me the reviews were "so-so" and some of the complaints were serious. But I was expecting (From the hotel's claims) an up-to-date renovated hotel, a great view, and a friendly staff, and I was willing to put up with an inconvenience or two in trade. Ok, the room was clean enough; the staff was polite.
BUT here is my "so-so" list: 1.no microwave. 2. no fridge. 3. one small table with a big TV sitting on it. 4. one chair in the room. 5. horizontal (noisy)AC/heat unit from the 70's. 6.no operable bathroom vent. 7. poor lighting especially in bathroom. 8. no bedroom light switches, just lamps on individual plugs. 9. local calls charged to room 10. expensive internet $10/day 11. the view is good, if-standing-only...take another look at the pictures they provide. 12. to enter the elevator you walk through the outer-edge of a bar,...a sober(ing) experience. 13. no free-coffee in lobby
I believe it was an old Sheraton Hotel when it was new but it got a little obsolete, it didn't move me to take even one picture...Throw in a free high-speed internet and I might give it a 2.5 but a 2 is pretty fair for this $700+ stay.
