Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We booked our room through Expedia. The hotel claimed that we asked for a king room when we in fact had requested two queens. The only room they had available was filthy. Blood and pee and hair in the room. We told them we did not want the room and wanted our money back. They said we could not get our money back unless it was retuned by Expedia. Expedia told us that the hotel has to return our money. Still fighting with both sides to get our money back. Very frustrating.

The Dakota was under some renovations during our stay, so understandably amenities were limited. However, there were issues that could be resolved despite that. There were mattresses out in the second floor hallway. When checking out at 8:30am Sunday morning, there was no one at the front desk. Employees walked around with food in front of guests. There was spilled cereal in one of the hallway floors.
