Amazing suite room
Everything is satisfied for my stay. But my opinion for onsite parking fee is not necessary charging too high $30 per day. You can just park your car adjacent parking lot or on street for much less than $10.

Family stay
The stay was ok. I was expecting much more. You are not informed of all fees at time of check in. Parking is $32 a day and the garages first 3 levels are valet, you can not park there and they don’t offer or mention valet at check in. I was charged $100 more than my reservation stated amount and when asked why, the receptionist couldn’t explain it . The pool was over crowded with the party crowd, so my family of 2 little ones couldn’t enjoy it. The music from the bars downtown can be heard in the room and all night we heard folks taking loudly through the walls and banging on hotel doors until about 3 am . Breakfast was great, again over crowded. The bed was comfortable, the room was nice and clean . Overall a descent stay .
