Beautiful Hotel
The hotel was in beautiful condition and very comfortable. The staff was really friendly and helpful (especially Albert!). Our only disappointment was the Redwood Room. The service was good, but the vibe was strange. The cool modern furnishings looked out of place with the the warm, rich Redwood paneling. The really loud, pulsing dance music seemed out of place for the semi-intimate feeling of the bar. It’s like they were trying to pretend it was a dance club while ignoring the rather sedate crowd gathered. Also, they have a dress code, which was completely ignored. Why have a dress code at all? Sadly, it’s as if The Redwood Room doesn’t know what to be or who it’s customers are! But as a hotel review, the Clift Hotel itself was lovely!!
