Nice Hotel but Taxes and Service Charges are High
The hotel is very nice, staff is friendly and helpful. However, we were a bit surprised by how high the service charges and fees were. For instance, a bottle of wine from the mini bar, one that would cost about $10 in a store, was $39.95. I guess that's to be expected from a mini-bar, but then they add a service charge of $7.19 and taxes of $7.06 making that $10 wine a total of $54. The food service from the in-hotel restaurant was excellent, but the noise level in the restaurant is unbelievably high. Our evening meals were excellent, but breakfast was not as good. Valet parking is required and will add another $37 plus tax per night, which seems a bit high.
