Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
There is no VALET PARKING as advertised, there was no one at the front desk to check in, we had to wait for 37 mins for someone to arrive. That person was extremely rude n refused to help with where i could find parking. He stated that “if i felt strongly about how he was treating i could speak to his manager as he did not care who i was or what i thought” i asked him why he was being hostile towards me n he just asked if i wanted my keys or not? Of course we needed our keys! We had just driven 27 hours from Texas!
