Very happy couple
Service was very good. Front office run really well the front office manager. I think his name was Ross I could be wrong was amazing really helped us out with room service which was really messed up by the way don’t count on Fletchers. Their small and overcrowded housekeeping was amazing, clean, detailed we asked for extra towels, extra coffee, extra creamers she was very responsive and so was the housekeeping, main line as was the maid the restaurant for breakfast I forget the name was amazing. The servers are all teammates, helping each other. It was great food great service.

4/10 Fair

Offensive art and many problems
Service was very good but several issues. All of which I had read before, answered online by a manager, and never corrected. 1) the day of checkout at 8 am after one light knock the cleaning crew woke us by opening the door. Seems to be a very common issue. Front desk should come up with a better system for telling the cleaning crew which rooms are already vacant. 8 am barge ins are unreasonable 2)24/7 loud noise heard through earplugs which kept us from properly sleeping. Air duct? Elevator? Again a problem I read about in many prior reviews. Still a problem 3)captain cook is not a historical figure I celebrate as “discovering” lands native populations had loved on thousands of years prior to his arrival. Didn’t bother me enough to not stay here. I was not prepared however for the large murals covering many walls that depict aboriginal and native people in a cartoonish and less than human way. Maybe reproductions from historical books but they have no place in a hotel common area in this day and age. A textbook, museum? As a teaching moment maybe for a dark past? Not in a hotel. It bothered me to the point of anger the first night. We will come, and never return. However I feel for the staff who have to pass these every day. 4) hotel pool specifically listed as family friendly. It’s very clear that it’s only a lap pool. Furthermore they separate boys from girks, including kids who are told to enter on their own on opposite ends of the floor. Luckily a staff member…
