Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is in poor shape and the service was poor. Lack of service at the pool areas. Valet service took forever. Coffee in the morning was a 15 minute line. The fact that they don’t serve any top shelf liquor at the pool on a Saturday afternoon isn’t acceptable for a 5 star hotel. Place is excellent location and property but the physical structure is dated and worn. Needs major remodel.
