Exceptional 10.0
Best business stay to date.
I had not stayed at a hotel like this, and to my surprise it beats even the most luxurious hotels that I have stayed. The staff and amenities are above most of them.

Poor 2.0
Our keys never worked and we had to go back to office every time we needed to open the door - no attempt was made to offer any discount of any kind for our trouble - simply a sorry it’s a security glitch
Bryce, us1 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
WARNING: Construction going on!
We booked a stay because it was cheaper than in the recent past. It turned out that there is major renovation going on and we had to trek through an adjacent parking lot and the a restaurant court yard to get access to an elevator that eventually got us to the reception. None of this was mentioned when we booked the room. Not cool. (They did leave a small bag of candies in the room as an after the fact apology.)

Fair 4.0
Disappointed
The hotel is undergoing construction and while the rooms are nice and the service is great, the construction made it noisy and inconvenient. For the price, this was a huge disappointment. Also we believe we should have been told about the construction before making reservation. Or at lease a reduction in room rate??
