My backpack with valuable items (laptop, keys, etc.) was stolen out of my rental car while idling in valet right outside the hotel. Management didn't care. Sketchy neighborhood. Picture of hotel on-line is deceiving. It is run down. Stay away.
This property is beat down and expensive, very dissatisfied and my wife did not enjoy her stay.. we couldn’t sleep because we could hear the neighbor snoring and people walking above us.. and our room walls would shake every time we walked around in front of the bed.. for 300$ per night they could have thrown us some complementary items in the fridge but no.. even the ice machine was out of ice.. never staying here again, very unpleasant experience..
