The air conditioning made noise ALL night like it was going to break. Like popping popcorn. Myself, my husband and my toddler were up ALL night. Ridiculous when you pay $800 a night to not have proper air conditioning. My friend also staying ata different part of the hotel had the same issue. Needs to be resolved ASAP.

Review
We stayed one night for our son's college graduation. Therefore, the price was over-inflated for the accomodations. The hotel is in a great location but is very dated. We arrived early and our check in time was supposed to be 4 p.m. but the room wasn't ready until 5 p.m. which caused us to almost miss a dinner reservation. Once we actually got into the room to freshen up we were rushed. We waited in the hotel cafe/bar for almost 2 hours which cost us more money in refreshments and weren't offered any comp for the inconvenience.

We were pretty disappointed with the quality and look of our room. It did not resemble anything from the website. You are definitely paying for the location of this hotel - not a beautiful hotel room. Also, walls are paper thin, so we could hear the TV from the next room at 6am. With that being said, the outside and patio areas were very pretty. Probably the most impressive thing was the Valet service. They were very prompt and hustled every time we needed our car, which I guess is expected since Valet is the only parking option. Overall, I would not recommend this property - very overpriced.
