I think this hotel would be better if either the breakfast, wifi, or parking were included in the fee. The DT Alana charges like it's a fancy place but the interior and amenities don't really justify the prices.
The front desk staff was just so-so, they didn't really bend over backwards to help us.
The valets were really good. They had lots of helpful suggestions.
The guy working the hot breakfast buffet was good too.
The rooms had old worn out carpet and really tiny bathrooms. The kitchenette area was decent - big sink, small fridge, coffeemaker.
The living room had comfortable furniture but it didn't look very nice.
The beds were comfortable. We had a weird room divider separating the living room from the bedroom. It looked like it was constructed from leftover closet doors and they made a big commotion when you closed them
The patios were a nice feature but they had crappy views and the views would even be okay if they updated the balcony railing and furniture.
We had an issue with our air conditioner that maintenance fixed very quickly - that was nice.
