Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service
It was more burdensome to my family than a vacation should be. The room was a long walk from the main lobby area and from the main areas where people staying there would normally go. It was also a long walk from the room to the closest elevators (we were in room 541). The bathroom faucets had excessively restrictive meters that made it hard to wash our hands or brush our teeth and rinse off toothbrushes. (It's important right now with the Covid pandemic to be able to frequently wash hands). The parking lot was about a 1/4 mile walk from our hotel room. We were charged a $55 "Valet fee" PER DAY for parking even though WE self-parked (we self-parked to minimize contact with strangers to slow Covid). There should be no parking fee: there are plenty of empty spaces and thus no demand for them. Also, there should be no fee when people self-park to reduce the spread and when valets don't park your car. Expedia mentioned "Resort Fees" but not parking fees. The parking fee and resort fee should be prominently specified on Expedia in advance of the booking. The hotel had bad coffee at the front desk and the Cafe Blue. They should have a Starbucks or Pete's or offer gourmet coffee rather than what tastes like Folgers. And they only made free coffee available for guests from 5am until 8am, rather than until perhaps 10 or 11 am. People on vacation often want to sleep in a bit; but they'd still like to have a nice complimentary morning cup. The room was stuffy. All staff were friendly.

Food choices were poor! The property is difficult to get to in the evening after a dinner, when one has had a few glasses of wine!
