Check in 4, check out 11? You’ll get sass when you request a late check out. Didn’t appreciate that. Not all employees wear masks. Most guests did not. DO NOT pay for a city view upgrade, total waste. I reminded the guy at check in & he said yes we had a good view. We were put in a room on the 7th floor w/ a view of the alley & dumpsters behind some restaurants. I called to request a better room they moved us to floor 9 where if you went to the corner, crooked your neck just right, & looked way off to the left you could sort of see some of the city. It was the smallest hotel room I’ve ever stayed in. I had food delivered and requested contactless delivery to my door. Front desk called and said I needed to pick up. I advised him that I needed room delivery & he laughed & said “I don’t think he’s going to make it up”. I received a msg from the driver that he was not allowed upstairs. Ok?! At least send someone from the hotel up with the food. There had been no issue with this before. The coffee is so bad it’s offensive & you only get 1 for 2 guest. You have to move the pot to a plug, only 1 trash bin in the room. Everything was just so inconvenient & not the least bit costumer oriented. If you want to pay $200 to sleep in a bed go ahead. You’ll get the same for less & so much for the same elsewhere. Valets & decor were nice. We won’t be staying here again

I loved the location. I did not like paying $32.00 a day for parking, but you have not other options. Had very noisy neighbors with loud, thumping music playing at all hours.
