The view from this property is stunning, especially at night. Concierge and staff helped me make this stay memorable for my family. Any request we had they took care of it right away. The drinks at the bar are probably the best I've had. One of them was too pretty to drink. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

The room was not cleaned, I found tras still on the floor. The shower had hair still in it so obviously it hadn't been cleaned. I was told that parking had two options $58 for valet and $38 for self parking for hotel guest. At check out I was informed that the cost for parking was $45. This experience was awful to say the least and could have been avoided with proper training.
