Disappointing check in experience as staff was overwhelmed, the process took a long time, and the room we booked was unavailable. We did get comped $100 and the valet fee so that was nice. Room was great. Everything was new and clean. Stocked mini bar which is novel these days. Bar downstairs closed a little too early. Checkout was same as check in. The staff is overwhelmed.
