Bad Start!
It started with not having my fully paid reservation on file with the hotel. I arrived and went to check in and the Hotel could find NO reservation, I then had to call to find out what was going on. The lady that I spoke to from did get the reservation quickly to the hotel, however now there were 5 people ahead of me checking in and I had to wait. I had booked and paid a higher rate for 2 queen beds for 2 days, but then all they had available was a king bed. The brought up a portable bed but it was totally uncomfortable, should have received a refund to king bed rate for two days. The front desk staffer did offer a free drink ticket for the delays. When I went to use the ticket at the Lobby bar at 4pm the lady bartender working the bar had her back turned to all of the customers and was messing with the cash register and not taking drink orders of tending to customers needs for over 10 minutes. I had to speak up twice and ask her are you taking drink orders. The couple next to me were waiting on limes for their drink and unhappy. Further down the bar another guest trying to place an order to no avail. The girl next to me also patiently waiting over 10 minutes and no order taken, the female bartender then told the girl I will be right back instead of taking her order, the girl customer just left the bar and I did the same thing. Female bartender has NO CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLs and should be fired!

Bring cleaning wipes!
The customer service was good but the room was not clean. There was dust everywhere. I used 2 wipes to clean the black dirt off of the remote control. I've stayed here before and never had this problem. This stay made me not want to come back here again. I hope the cleaning staff does a better job in the future.

Very Good8.0
Okay visit.
Every interaction we had with the front desk staff, valet parking staff, etc. was very positive. Everyone was very friendly, helpful and competent at their job! We stayed for four nights at the beginning of the week and came back for one more night at the end of the week. The first stay had a view of the loop outside the window. Nice view, but the room seemed worn. The beds were not comfortable and we were disappointed, however we had already booked the night for the end of the week. When we returned for the last night, it was on the opposite side of the hallway with a view of the city. The room was much nicer - same exact furnishings, but not as worn. The mattresses on the beds were much better as well. Don't know if this is random or if there is truly a difference in the two sides of the hotel. The restaurant is TERRIBLE!!! Avoid at all costs! Out of convenience, we ate dinner there on the night we arrived after a very long day of travel. After paying a hefty price for our meal, we never returned even so much as to the shop in the lobby to buy coffee. Although the service was fine, the food was not palatable. I can't imagine they would ever get repeat business from their customers.

The staff at the hotel was wonderful. Our room was comfortable, great view of the city, easy access to the freeway, shopping nearby. Excellent trip.
