I was expecting a better kept property, I understand it’s an old building and you want to keep the look but the lobby looked dirty and the lanterns on the building outside had broken lights. You hardly saw any staff around. I will not stay there again nor recommend it.

The festival outside was so loud, no valet parking, no room service, rude check in, had to come down for a toothbrush, had to walk with all luggage to parking garage. View was awesome, bed was comfy once the music stopped

Room was never turned over after multiple request. They didn’t apologize and just offered reward points.
