Great hotel and room, but….
Hotel was great, we loved our loft room. It remained us of where we spent our honeymoon out of state. Dinner at the restaurant was delicious. Service was amazing and quick. The staff was great during every encounter. Only caught was the $25 resort fee which is a complete scam. There was no water bottles in our room and only 2 Kcups. We didn’t use the fitness center. Not sure why these things are an incremental charge even if you don’t want them.

One big issue was the $22+/night for hotel fees (amenities, etc.). There wasn't even any bottled water in our room. Only 2 cups of coffee available in room. Nice excuse for overcharging. We went to the hotel bar and after waiting 5 minutes without service we left. It wasn't even busy. We took our money elsewhere.
