The customer service at the front desk was truly a stand out. I had a great view overlooking the marina, and a nice meal from room service. Would definitely stay here again. In fact, I'm going to make my reservation for when I'm back there in a week - now!

First of all, The Valet guys pretty much negotiated their tip. I did not have change and they pulled the old "its the holidays so let us keep it".. I booked this thru Expedia and they asked me for a credit card for incidentals. However after my checkout, they charged my card for the room. When i contacted them, the lady was extremely short and rude and basically stated that Expedia had not paid them for the room Contacted Expedia and obviously they say that they have and now i have to work with my credit card company to dispute the charge so that someone there (That carees) can research and correct the issue.
