We really enjoyed this hotel, as well as the location and staff! Kudos to all of the bartenders! we also want to give a very special compliment to Allen in valet! He was truly exceptional with his customer service and is an extremely hard worker! He always has a smile on his face and works very hard for all of his guests! Please recognize his efforts as he made our stay even more special!! Room 1508 :)

Positive: The location was great. The room was also very nice. Loved the giant bathtub. Hotel was very beautiful. Negative: I score the staff low based on valet and room service. Only one valet attendant and he was terrible. Parked in garage, desk attendant upgraded us to suite, which was fabulous. No ice bucket in room, called room service for ice and they never showed.
