Many guests did not entirely enjoy their stays and there were a few weak points that guests complained about.
Firstly, several guests did not like the parking situation at the hotel. Most of these guests did not complain about the price although some did.
More frequently it seemed that guests bypassed the hotel's offer of $40 valet parking and parked at a recommended lot in a nearby building. These guests often stated that parking led to confusion or an inconvenience because they had trouble finding their way back to the hotel using the underground/covered walkways. For example, one guest said that parking at the HBC Centre "was not clearly signed" and how to get back into the hotel "without going outside" was not clear.
Some guests felt that the hotel was limited in some other ways. Patrons generally said good things about their rooms however some guests were disappointed that there were no fridges. Other guests wished that the hotel had a pool and occasionally a guest called the main lobby small.
There were also some complaints about extra charges at the hotel for phone calls and Internet usage. Lastly many guests complained that the hallways in the hotel were long which led to long walks from the elevators to the rooms.
