Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I liked the cleanliness, did not like that the fridge was empty, no mini bar, nothing to snack on, bar closes at 11pm on a Saturday evening, did not like the bathroom, clean but super small, no bathtub, sink was outside the bathroom, room was very small even though we chose the most expensive rooms, definitely not worth the $900 per night

3/5 Okay

Traveled with partner
Liked: Staff & service
We were pretty disappointed with the quality and look of our room. It did not resemble anything from the website. You are definitely paying for the location of this hotel - not a beautiful hotel room. Also, walls are paper thin, so we could hear the TV from the next room at 6am. With that being said, the outside and patio areas were very pretty. Probably the most impressive thing was the Valet service. They were very prompt and hustled every time we needed our car, which I guess is expected since Valet is the only parking option. Overall, I would not recommend this property - very overpriced.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I was moved between 3 rooms after 11pm. The first room had silverfish in the bedroom and bathroom. In the second room it was left uncleaned: beds were un-made, trash in the trashcans, and dried stuff in the sink. It feels like the cleaning staff did a quick once over then left.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
The only thing we liked was the quality of the restaurant food. We booked two rooms. One faced the street and the other one was right next to the pool/restaurant door. Both rooms can hear loud noises from the outside. We can also hear people talking on the hallway and activities from the restaurant at night! One of the room has spider webs hanging from the ceiling! The restroom smells when we checked in. The side entrance next to our room is open all day and we feel any outsider can come into the property and didn’t feel safe. One homeless lady was using the lounge area to charge her phone. This is not a hotel worthy of $500 /night. We will definitely not coming back and will not recommend this place to anyone. Very disappointed.
