Although the front desk personnel who checked me in (I believe Natalie) was very pleasant and welcoming I expected more from this hotel being a 4 star. I normally stay at the chain hotels which are about 3 stars but decided on this place since it was a weekend birthday celebration and wanted to treat myself to something nicer and different. I was told I had a executive suite but it was far from executive and looked very basic to me. The furniture in room was old and had scratches all over. Shower was very small. Noticed a stain on sheet after I already payed in bed. Again being a 4 star up against the chain hotels I would choose a chain hotel before this next time
