"Eh."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Concierge sent us to a restaurant that had been obviously shut down for quite some time for dinner. Towel rack in shower fell off the wall as soon as I hung a towel on it. AC/thermostat did not work was set to 68° before going to sleep and woke up sweating to a still 75° room in the morning. No one inquired about my stay or comfort during checkout.

"Staff were terrific, room fabulous, lobby ah?."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I found your staff very pleasant, extremely accommodating and helpful. The guest room was comfortable, bed and pillows just right and TV good size. But your lobby design is a chaotic mess. Loud and noisy, lacked way finding and the location of the reception which is smashed into a little corner where the acoustics were so bad I had to scream to be heard and have the clerk yell in my ear to understand what her or she said. Redesign this and it will be perfect. Other then that we will be back.

"Do Not Stay Here."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
You enter through a bar. Reception is one desk behind the bar that you can’t find unless the bartender tells you where it is. The bed was hard as a rock ( seriously, a park bench would be more comfortable) and the bedding was too light for this time of year (winter). The walls are painted black and I had to use my phone’s flashlight to figure out how to turn on some of the lights. But the worst and stupidest thing are black walls in the bathroom with a bright light over the toilet, bright light in the tub area, but NO LIGHT over the sink and mirror. And no water pressure in the shower. Worst. Hotel. Design. Ever.
