Nick, us2 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Overall, what I expected.
Clean & efficient service. When I got there I first realized that I had to pay $20, per day, for parking (gate ticket) in addition to their $25 surcharge. Nearly $50, per day, seemed a bit excessive, and there were very few nearby parking options at the time, April 2021. The bar, on the 7th floor is nice—even elegant—but pricey. The food definitely was not as expensive as their drinks. I ordered Old Fashion & Knob Creek, and spent a pretty penny. They had also just started a new dinner menu that week. I did not eat breakfast at this hotel. I did stay 4 nights, and went through the room with a UV ('black/purple') flashlight. Everything was spotless, besides the sectional (couch), which had a couple of dry spots on its surface. Since I was traveling solo dolo, I was not too concerned—I just did not use the sectional anyways. They were busy, which was nice to see. From my traveling experience(s), if you can manage a room.... Stay put. You may end up getting more than you bargain for if you're quick to change rooms. Wooden floors & imitation marble (granite) gave off a sublime appearance in the room itself. The sheets were spotless, and the interior climate control worked very well. The TV was modern, and allowed you the option to check-out without having to see the front desk. You simply leave your room card in your room. The service was excellent. When you pay for this kind of accommodation, nothing less can be expected.

Tesla Charging Etiquette
Unhappy stay. I hope someone reads this who plans to stay here and not all the “good reviews” it’s electric vehicle charging etiquette to not leave your Hotel Company car in the charge stall UNPLUGGED. I’m a paying customer and you are lazy. I had to ask the manager to move her Tesla so as me as the GUEST could charge my Tesla. You were not thrilled you had to move not one but BOTH of your Telsa’s in the only 2 charge stations available. You clearly have NO respect for owning a Telsa. I can tell it’s just a company car. Now you know, privilege of driving our cars comes with some simple etiquette. Charging option was a big reason we stayed here for the electric charge option. Your hotel is also very dirty for $400 for the weekend. No complimentary breakfast. I will never stay here again. Your fancy website is highly misleading to what is reality.

Did not let us know of parking fees and did not get us towels when requested
Kelly, us2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Nice hotel but not friendly staff
Our stay was great but parking was not made clear at the front desk so when I went to ask the person at the front desk she was annoyed that I was asking her about it. She acted like I should have known already what I was doing.

First there was trash in the fridge, then we were told twice to quite down when just simply laughing. Not a fun trip for me or my friend I feel as if it was a waste of money
Danielle, us1 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
Not what I expected unfortunately
The room didn’t have charging ports for usb or even a hairdryer. My back is killing me after 2 nights in the bed and the walls and door must be paper thin. I heard people ALL night in the halls and next door to us. We also made dinner reservations at the Igloo only to find out there wasn’t a dinner menu, only snacks. Had to try and find another place to eat at the last minute on a Saturday night. Would not go back.
