Came with a group of friends that also had rooms at this property. First things 1st the valets where over aggressive about getting a tip and if we were leaving everytime we got our car. Then there was a "security guard" who said his job was to check everyone going upstairs but out of group of 20 he mysteriously only checked me (The tall african american with tattoos). When i asked why i was only asked I was told that the security officer wasnt doing his job right by his manager and that everyone should be checked. So I asked the question again, why was I the only one picked and got no answer. When I asked the manager on duty for a corporate number or his managers number I was given an email and a cold shoulder. This is a nice hotel and the discriminatory actions of the staff on duty really spoiled the experience. When my friends and I asked the manger on duty what could he do to make it right he offered " complimentary valet" as a solution. Such a spit in the face, will never go to this location or recommend any of my friends of color do the same.

A beautiful place. Very clean & felt comfortable . Wish that they would have a mini refrigerator and not only the mini bar...some people do have dietary needs & that made it hard. Was told 1st come first serve with that...NEVER got a heads up for an available one & made me feel like a pest. It is a fancy expensive hotel ..thinking they can afford to have many extras. All the doormen & valet were lovely.
