We were extremely disappointed and disgusted by room condition. There was black duct tape holding the ripped curtains together. We took photos. Unbelievable for $400 a night. Notified front desk but they did nothing. Would never consider recommending this hotel to family and friends.

We stayed on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend and the only dining available for dinner was outdoors. It was very windy. The music seemed to tone down over time but it was hard to hear each other talk initially.
