I just completed my stay at the C. Baldwin. I normally do not write reviews unless it absolutely warrants one and this one definitely does. The lobby and first floor of the hotel is top notch, gorgeous a total vibe. HOWEVER, that is the BEST this hotel has to offer. The room is mid AT BEST. There was no bath soap nor body wash. The toilet paper rolls was half empty and the room had food particles on the floor likely from a prior guests. The absolute worst part of my stay was due to my experience, or lack thereof with guest services. Prior to my arrival, I received a welcome text message from guest services, however, once I checked in, guest services just kind of disappeared. I couldn't get anyone on the phone at the front desk even though the hotel boasts 24 hr service. I tried the Hilton Honors app message and texted the number where I was initially contacted. It took over 4 hours to get my issues resolved. I wasn't able to use my on-site daily credit as the ONLY on site restaurant was closed for the duration of my stay, which meant no room service or or even dining in. The only place that I could've use the credit was at the bar which wasn't helpful since I typically drank alcohol during my restaurant reservations off site. Lastly, valet parking was over $62 per night!!!!! Never again will I stay at the C. Baldwin. This hotel was a 3 star at best. Terrible experience.

The staff is exceptionally helpful and accommodating. The hotel on the other hand is far from 4 star quality. I was very disappointed (and disgusted) by how dirty the public bathroom and rooms were. I had to wipe down all the filthy touch points (light fixtures, remotes, bathroom handles, etc) and request new sheets from housekeeping. The location was perfect for the event I was in town for so that was a plus. Also, Johnny at Rosalia Restaurant was incredible and very attentive. The hotel definitely looks better than the quality that you get.
