Tired, Older Property
Posted Mar 20, 2017
We stayed here for a weekend during Spring Training. The room prices were quite high, and I figured that it would be a good choice, since it is a Sheraton property. Wrong.
The good: all the staff I met were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and reasonably comfortable.
The disappointing: All the public spaces are run down and very much in need of major remodel. First impression is...oh, my. This appears to be a former corporate event oriented facility that now caters to vacation travelers--since no one would seriously consider a corporate event here. You drive past the seemingly abandoned banquet entrance (looking very 1980's), to the lobby area, which lacks any warm or attractiveness.
The lobby itself is pleasant, and has obviously been re-done fairly recently.
Once past the lobby, the "oh my" factor continues. There is a central atrium with a small indoor pool. Surrounded by construction, and bleak un-utilized spaces. Hallways lined with fold up cots ready for deployment. Hallways and elevators in need of a deep clean.
I was happy to learn I had breakfast included, which was unexpected. But when we came down with our breakfast coupons, we discovered that the complimentary breakfast wasn't the hotel restaurant buffet but a small banquet room set up with round tables, steam tables, and plastic plates and utensils. Don't mind the crumbs and spilled syrup, please.
