Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I recently had a one-night stay here and was so disappointed. The hotel ended up charging me $464 for a king suite. I was originally charged the correct amount by Expedia two weeks prior to my stay. Once I checked in, I was charged again for $280. I asked the hotel staff why I was charged twice & was told "something didn't go through correctly." I woke up the next day and found a receipt slipped under my door, stating I would be refunded much less than what was owed back to me. Once again, went to the front desk and was told something else happened and the money would be back in my account within a few days. Three days later, I THINK I was refunded the correct amount. On top of the issues with payment, I was disappointed with the room itself. There were holes in the hallway and bathroom ceiling that were "patched" with boards. The bathroom door was a double door you had to slam to close. The bathroom door didn't have a lock. The bathroom didn't have a fan. The couch had stains all over it. The mini fridge wasn't stocked. The mattress didn't have a fitted sheet. The hotel is beautiful and is right on the Riverwalk, but definitely not worth the price or headaches.
