I had a wonderful time there with my girlfriend. It was our first time together so the setting had to be right. We enjoyed the look and the dim lighting. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Lighting inside the room was good. Beds were extremely comfortable. Valet parking requires you text first and have to wait about 20 minutes. No annoying staff banging at your door as you’re preparing to leave. Street parking is nonexistent or very difficult to find so plan accordingly. No late night food spots but you can door dash

Liked: Staff & service
The location is great, the staff are super energetic and helpful, but the room interiors need a major refresh and the lobby interiors are very dark and very late '80's in decor. It could benefit with a refresh.
