They said pet friendly but charged $50 a day plus taxes per pet even though I was an Envoy member. The parking was high, $30 a day. I looked at parking one block away and it was $18 a day. Rip off. The room was nice but we were on the second floor overlooking the entrance with bright lights at night. Staff was very nice and accommodating.

Beautiful property in the best location. Staff were some of the best we have ever experienced in travel. This was our engagement weekend and I was a nervous wreck yet everything I was told fell right in place. One complaint, I know things happen and I understand this whole Covid mess, however there was only 1 elevator working at the property and the wait sometimes was an inconvenience. Not only for time but our family and friends had booked rooms as a surprise for bride to be and we never could seem to be on time to each other or location due to the single elevator handling all of the hotel guests and staff. This will not stop our return to this property but worth noting for soon to be travelers to the property. She said YES

Yes this hotel is in a great location, clean, trendy, but there are a lot of hidden fees. I’m from New York City, and I felt like I was getting charged like I was in NYC. The front desk told me it will be $30/day for parking, and later found out it was free street parking. I planned on working from my hotel room in the after noon and found out WiFi was an additional $13/day. “Breakfast to go” in the cafe (water, oatmeal and a latte) came to $20 without tip. I asked to use there “ business center” for a conference call, it was basically a small room that was part of the foyer and had one out of service computer monitor, a printer on one desk. I tried to take the call Friday morning from there and a wedding party showed up to take pictures in the foyer. This was a Thursday night to Friday morning in November, no holidays or bug crowds going on due to COVID. There was a room next to me that was there for some kind of celebration and I could hear them talking through the wall all night. I’m disappointed overall with the Lux Brand renaissance tries to hold to buy treats you like a used car dealership. If I pay $250 to stay in a room for 1 night, I would expect parking & WiFi to be imbedded in the cost. It was not.
