I hadn't stayed here for a couple of years and the whole area is now completed with lots of stores and restaurants.
I got upgraded to a suite, with a nice bathroom.
It's a small cozy hotel, the breakfast is solid!!
Had a one night visit for business and felt very underwhelmed and unappreciated. I used points for this trip and I still cannot help but to think that point stays are unappreciated by hotels and treated differently than cash rooms. However point stays are your most loyal customers and I have to stay at quite a few Hyatt properties to get a point comp. At check in, I was not recognized for being a Explorist, but no big deal as pretty much everyone is. But when booking, I was only able to be assigned an ADA compliant room. I normally do not like ADA rooms due to the layout and weird bathroom accommodations and requested for a regular room, not even an upgrade which I am entitled to at Explorist but did not request as I get that hotels do not like upgrading and sometimes upgrades are now considered being close to an elevator or room with a "view" and not necessarily a suite.
I really feel gouged on this trip and the only saving grace was the room was on points. Parking is $35.00 per day, I got a red bull in the afternoon, $7.81 and a coors light in the evening $8.95. requested for a quiet room and was assigned a room on the second floor next to the street which I can hear everything on a Friday night and not to mention that there were two parties downstairs which added to the noise. I really felt disappointed in the welcome and treatment as a loyalty club member. The rooms were decent but the atmosphere was broken with the poor treatment and price gouging. I would never pay $266 for this room as this was the going rate.
