  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort

It appears that the room had been refurbished, but the bathrooms if done at all was done very poorly. There was a lot of noise which led me to wonder how well insulated the place was. The staff however was great and the Songbirds venue is awesome.

  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

Overall Okay not Good/Great/Bad

The reception area is stunning from a different era as are the cars, but the rooms are dissapointing old and need updating. Kinda reminds you of The Shining. Location is excellent with quite a few things to do or eat in walking distance. The biggest issue was Valet parking is managed by a seperate company and they are extremely unorganized making the check in process very difficult and frustrating.
