2nd day open, wish we would have known.
It was only there 2nd day being opened, had I known that we wouldn’t have stayed . They are still charging 200.00 for Accidentals and $77 for a valet parking. There was nothing open. No room service the mini bars have been emptied out no snacks available in the room no spa, no pool, pretty much just you paying $400 for a room for one night. Don’t get me wrong the hotel is beautiful but had I known that it was only the second day of being open I would have waited later in the month to stay where they had maybe open up my stuff . I also paid for a breakfast package they were not serving breakfast there’s just a café that is downstairs in the hotel by the time we didn’t get to go and eat they had already run out of things there’s only one person working to pretty much feed everybody in the hotel that went to breakfast that morning so we ended up waiting 20 minutes standing in line just to get 2 croissants a oranges juice and a coffee.
