I didn't like that they did not meet our request for 2 queen beds and blamed it on Travelocity. They had our reservation well in advance as well as payment. Easy out for them to blame Travelocity. Kaleb kept repeating the same phrase and would not accommodate our request. Will not return to this Hotel and will not recommend to others.

The hotel was beautiful, the staff was very friendly, breakfast was delicious, and the room was nice. The only negative I have to say is that we had to pay for parking! That is a bad way to end our stay, finding out after the fact that we had to pay to park at the hotel we paid to stay at. Wouldve been nice to know ahead of time, or not pay for it at all!

We are glad that you enjoyed the hotel. We do post our parking fees on Travelocity's website along with signage directing you to our parking attendants at our main entrance with pricing. We apologize if this was not made clear at booking or at check-in.

The room was clean and well appointed. Registration and parking is accessed from Lady Street and not Gervais Street as reported on Travelocity. Buffet breakfast which is free in most hotels cost $9. The hotel parking lot is small and fills quickly. It cost $18 for self parking and when full guests have to park on the second level of a public parking deck one block away. The deck was free to the general public on weekends so I protested the charge. One also has to deal with aggressive panhandlers who wait for guests walking at night from the deck to the hotel. The hotel is next to some noisy bars including one called Woodys that blasts music out of doors. There are arguments and fights when the bars close down.

Some of the information you list in your review is inaccurate. We offer two parking options $14/day to self-park and $22/day to valet-park. Most hotels within in our area charge at or above these prices. The overflow parking garage we use once our front lot get full does normally charge. The past couple weeks the city has be installing a new credit card system, so the city was not charging. Our hot breakfast is complimentary to our World of Hyatt members, which is a free membership. Otherwise it is $9 per room not per guest per day. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay and would be glad to speak with you about this directly. I just wanted to clear up some of the inaccurate information in this review.
