The Bad
Although many guests were quite impressed with the hotel and its service, a few guest complaints were posted online.

Occasionally guests complained about inattentive staff: a bellman who didn't help with luggage or pass along a message to the front desk, a maid that did not provide enough towels during the turndown service visit.

A few guests felt the hallways were too dimly lit, and said the hotel rooms did not meet their expectations for a luxury hotel.

There seemed also to be small irritations from several guests who complained about isolated occurrences:  One guest complained about dusty floors, not enough hooks in the bathrooms for towels, no pay TV as advertised and no slippers provided.
