Went to an event at the Convention Center and it was very convenient.
The bartenders at birch bar and bellhop and doorman
Blood stained sheets, comforters. room not clean, trash left in the middle of my floor, stained sink, room not clean to begin with, no regular fillups of water and coffee, poor bedmaking etc
The location was nice, didn't go to convention center but would be great if working nearby in inside all day its next door. Walking distance to Wharf would be great in the summer, close enough in winter to walk briskly. View was nice even from a lower room(9th floor).
Upon checking in we requested a king but the reservation defaulted to two queens, not a huge deal but asked for king and reception said only way was to upgrade despite king/queens costing the same amount was to upgrade the reservation to larger room. Keep in mind hotel was empty after the boat show next door ended. Reception was miserable or may had been working a double. Paying for wifi unless rewards member, what year is this again? No mention of $44 a day parking but realize its a city.
Convenient location. Nice view. Nice fitness ctr.
Pay for wifi, really?
Rooms are comfortable and clean and a good location relative to the airport and convention center.
My room wasn’t ready until 8pm. Check in time is 3pm. 5 hours for a room that costs $350+ per night is unacceptable. I was given an excuse—the staff is “just behind”. No other support. We went to our Valentines dinner really harassed (and not able to take a shower/change clothes before going out). I will not stay here again.
