The price of this place is outrageous for the quality you get. I’ve seen holiday inn’s have better restaurants, bars, rooms, beds, bathrooms, and anything else you can imagine. Zero self park options unless you want to pay a meter every two hours or park a block away. Valet has a 6’ limit??

For the $800 a night, that it cost to stay at this property, I would’ve expected this to be more of a five star experience. There was no room service available. It took 40 minutes for us to get valet to park our car. The towels were cheap the linens were cheap and the hotel room was very poorly laid out with a bathroom that was the size of a cruise ship bathroom. Also, the hotel charged me $170 more than the Expedia price with all of their taxes and fees. This was such a rip off. We have stayed at the Townsend hotel in Birmingham, which is truly a five star hotel. It was half the price.

How to start.... for the amount paid, I was expecting an extraordinary accomodation, instead: 1. I stayed in room 818 and paid extra for a double queen room with a view. The view I got was to the other inner rooms, no outside view. I complaied with the staff at reception desk and he stated that the property had no double queen rooms with a view, only view to the inner side. 2. Shower was broken, they had to fix it on the second day. 3. No phone was available at the room, everytime I needed anything (towels, toilette paper, water), I had to go downstairs to let them know. 4. Room was only made every other day. 5. Shower room was super super tiny 6. Ice machines are only available on every other floor, not in mine of course. 7. Coffe maker was not cleaned either and coffe cups were not replaced on a daily basis 7. Valet parking service is rather slow, sometimes they have a bunch of people and sometimes they lack of personnel, one of the days I was there it took them 40 minutes to bring my car. 8. Bed was really comfy, only I had to make it everyother day. If at all, I feel dissapointed, the building itself is gorgeuos, the location superb if they only took care of the small details.
