Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
We booked a suite because of the fireplace, it wasn’t working. The “personal assistant” never answers, the phone rings and rings and no pick up. We ordered breakfast after an hour and a half called to check on it they said it would be 20 minutes which means it was never even started, we just cancelled. Called valet to get our car and had to call two additional times to just get our car, took almost 45 minutes. There is no customer service, worst “5 star” hotel I have ever stayed in. Would never stay again at this property.
