    Great hotel but beware of high priced parking!

    Hotel is in a great location close to transportation and dining. The staff was very friendly and helped guide us to the places me wanted to see. The building is being renovated but didn't really impact our stay. The only negative is that I was unexpectedly hit with a $49 valet parking fee (plus $8 tax on said service) for a one night stay that I was unaware of. The listing stated the service was available but did not include pricing. The valet staff was also not forthcoming with the fees when we arrived.

    Wildly disappointing

    No internet. TV was in and out. Staff was rude, which is pretty amazing considering that the hotel is under serious construction, but that even when calling them before hand to ask about it, they played it down. Rooms are poorly built to where when people let their doors close in the hallway, the room shakes slightly. Very light on the amenities side, which again should be ramped up when the hotel is under such construction (8 am to 6 pm, not 9-5 as I was told). No restaurant, etc. They need better help with marketing and management to deal with this. Give the guests something for this. I could suggest many easy ways, which will not cost you anything, to at least offer the guests a bit for staying in this mess.

    Hotel Hoodwink

    Should be called Hotel Hoodwink Under construction due to open in 2020 No carpet in the room. No facilities at all. It’s not far off from being a building site. Massively underwhelmed. I was upgraded to a room it finished. I’m sure it will be lovely when finished. A warning before should have been issued. Staff are friendly and helpful
