8/10 Very good

Not worth what they are charging
It's mostly an issue of value, at nearly 400 a night, it's not worth it it at all, the space is nice but the service is not on that price level. It's a nice space, just could be refreshed, the curtains aren't black out, the AC is very noisy, the rooms are small.

4/10 Fair

Not up to stabdards
The valet was a disaster both arriving and departing. The check in also had a very long line with one representative working when we arrived with eventually three working once we got to the front of the line. The other disappointing thing to happen during our stay was being told we couldn’t go to the pool because it had reached its capacity, of 10! Very hard to explain to our children why we got ready for the pool but then had to go back to our room. Avoid this hotel.

Wonderful kind staff but the hotel and rooms itself were too old. The room smelled so bad and the cleaning lady advised us it was the sewage
