Our check-in was at 3pm. We arrived by car at 2pm. The line was terrible. I have my son with me, lining up for almost 2hrs. They checked us in at 4pm. While handling our car keys, the parking staff asked if I'd like to park the car outside, I said yes. We get out at 8pm to drive to an event, our car is not parked outside but there are 2 car spaces available. We asked the staff at parking to get our car. While waiting, another car arrived to park, staff at parking parked their car in 1 space available. Then another car arrived, staff at parking parked their car in the 2nd space available. Waited for 31 mins before they bring our car. Our check out is at 11.00 am, it's not worth to ruin another, line is everywhere, everything takes F****** slow so we've checked out at 8.36 am. It's a nightmare stay celebrating anniversary!.

This hotel could do with a Reno... tired and shabby. Absolutely no atmosphere in lower bar , billfold falling apart, room not cleaned properly.. no soap. Strange smell upon entering room. Once into main bedroom area it seemed to dissipate but was ever present upon entering. Only good thing was the view. Will not recommend.
