    Poor 2.0
    Worst experience!!!
    This was the worst stay. I was recommended by a good friend who gave me an excellent review. However it was far from excellent. Upon my arrival there was no valley parking due to covid 19 which was very understandable. After 15 min of looking for a park we finally squeezed into a parking space in the parking garbage a block away. We checked in to what we thought was a King suite with a lake view. Unfortunately we walked into a 2 full size room. When I called customer service they explained since I booked via a third party service it was first come first serve and there was no more King size rooms available. They mentioned I should have been explained this upon arrival which I was not. The lady then told me she could refund my money and I can go stay somewhere else or give me a $75 meal/ beverage credit at this point I just took the credit lord knows how long it would be before I could find another room last min on the 4th of July. So we ended up order a steak and potatoes and of course it was cold. I called for a ice bucket they said they didn’t have any but would try to find one. I asked to borrow a android charger they said they didn’t have one but I could buy one for $15. The room was still dirty and smelled funny, light bulbs where out and the windows where dirty. Overall my experience was a 4 out of 10 and I would not recommend The W to anyone. By the way I went home and didn’t even stay the night.

    Great location and nice rooms and service
    ASIM, us2 night trip
    Very Good 8.0
    Not what it used to be.
    The location is nice, the rooms could use a little TLC, the shower knob kept falling off, drywall was rotting away around the shower, caulking was old and gross and room had spaghetti on the floor when we checked in, there is an empty space where the amazing W mini bar used to be as they have done away with those. Definitely not what The W used to be but our stay was just fine overall. Probably won’t stay at this location again.
    Christopher, us3 night trip
    Poor 2.0
    No where did it say how much the parking was. Also we had one booking number under hotels .com but they charge us 200 per night for the incidentals. They also told us they would take care of it and they did not. They also told us we would have to move rooms each night. Over all for the money we have nothing good to say.
