Excellent customer service from front desk and employees, they are renovating the hotel and look wonderful with antique decoration, parking great for 5 or 6 dollars per day, with night security. The rooms hopefully should be renovated, cleaning service excellent with everyday towel, but the faucet bathroom is old, bed is not comfortable. Very well located for walking distance for museums, restaurants, stores. Definitive will recommend to stay on this Melia Hotel and the female front desk was very helpful and professional on her role.

Staff was uninterested in your enjoyment, to say the least. I will make one exception, one off the three receptionist was kind, and accommodate a request we presented. The property was dirty, the room was dirty, we have wipe the surfaces ourselves, the trash from the last guess was still there. The whole expirience was not to par with the Melia name brand.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
The main reason I rated this hotel so poorly because the room was filthy. The carpet was old and torn the bathroom was not clean properly the sink had waste in it, the shower had mildew. The room had almost no amenities whatsoever. The good point was the staff that I spoke to at check-in and when I departed were very nice.
