Attention on the beds and maintenance to the furniture, it looks old but could be refresh with a little care, it doesn’t have to be modern

The room was lovely and the staff was so friendly and helpful. I especially fell in love with your delightful hostess in the restaurant where we had breakfast in the hotel. She was so friendly, gave us suggestions on what to see, and made us feel very welcome. we also enjoyed the pool.

The staff was very helpful. We didn't have a mini fridge in our room but they provided one upon request.

The hotel is located on a busy street where loud cars go up and down the strip revving up their engines and playing loud music all day and all night. The curtains in the hotel rooms do not close all the way. They have the pull down shades that darken the room but they leave an inch gap which leaves light in . I was disappointed that I had no tub in my bathroom. I was not given the option for one. So i guess i could not when get one. Thankfully The manager moved me to the other side of the hotel when I asked. I guess even then i could not upgrade not even for a fee; i would have gladly paid a little extra for a tub. The staff in the hotel was for the most part pretty nice with exception of a couple of people with bad people skills. The bartenders were great. They were funny, and full of info about where to go around town for entertainment and shopping. The one bartender Francis (Sir Francis of Martinis) was awesome. The food was good. The drinks were terrific. I suggest the bar. If go anywhere, at least hit up the bar. The hotel does have weird hours for their restaurant, and bar though. I think needing reservations for the restaurant is a bit of a pain. But i am sure because of the space it is probably needed. A lot of people come there from outside the restaurant not just in the restaurant. The valet people are great the are on it. If you need something they are quick to help with a smile. The pool was small.
