I will give a fair review.. Some things were good. Some were bad.. Somethings were just weird. You can make your own judgments..
The good... I arrived at 1330 hrs. I was given an early check In.. Really good. My room was 606.. It was clean and efficient. Had a city view.. Good...
You need a key to access the elevator to get to the floors..Good
Parking was $20 a night. Which is cheap for downtown, but I dont think as a guest and a rewards member, you should have to pay to park at all.. But thats beside the point...
Close to the pier.. You could literally walk the 6 blocks. But why, when they provide a shuttle.
The Bad.. I did not realize this hotel on the weekends is used by local teens for one nighters to crash after bdays, parties, etc.. I wouldnt mind if they kept to themselves. But no, they are screaming, running and slamming doors. When i called the front desk to complain. I was told by the woman at the desk "Not to worry, they are going out to the bars". I replied, "If they are like this now, I cant imagine at 5 am, how bad its gonna be".. Sure enough, they were banging on doors yelling for each other.. I guess Rebecca is a popular girl..Singing through out the hall.. Maybe i could over look that ,but when i saw my bill for those nights, I was charged $197 per night.. Really?? That much to put up with a frat house environment?
The Wi-fi is terrible..
If you purchase a breakfast option,
The food is plentiful but not very good.. Oatmeal is packets, you make yourself.
If you want condiments, such as ketchup, salt and pepper? Well, those are individual packets that you would get from a drive thru, fast food, place.
How does one mess up pancakes so bad it tastes like nothing ?
Its a little odd that they try and deceive you to think its different food. But its not. They just rearrange the placement of everything daily.
The restaurant isnt located inside the hotel.. You have to exit the bldg and go past the garage, into another set of doors.. Its not conducive that early in the am... If i wanted to go out for breakfast, I might as well walk to Little italy.
The pool.. Its a plunge pool. The location is very odd.. Its located right behind the front desk that is separated by windows.. Which is good, should you need assistance but otherwise anyone at the front desk, will be watching you.. Its like you are entertainment for the guests checking in.. Think the mermaids at Weeki watchee..
Overall, for just myself it was ok...Would I bring my family or friends ? No..
If its a weekend, find out what floor they are putting the local kids on and refuse that floor.
PS.. The parking spots arent very big. So bringing a big SUV or truck isnt the best idea.. The ramps are very small so beware. less
