The service and food has declined over the years, just like the hotel itself. I remember when the place first opened and how nice it use to be, but now it is so different. I felt sorry for the 60 year old woman serving us....More

The breakfast menu is now only about 6 choices and way overpriced. I wanted some breakfast but only got a sample of breakfast as the menu now is just one page and has all 3 meals on it. I gave an extra star to my...More
