I stayed there last week (at a priceline.com rate).

Compared with one year ago and two years ago (at regular rates), I believe the property has improved, due no doubt to the refurbishment but especially because of more welcoming staff.

TV selection poor, with only 20 channels or so. How can it be that most Days Inns and the like can have far more cable programming?

$11 per day for parking. When I stayed there before, I didn't pay for parking. They seem to have almost completed a new underground parking facility.

I also stayed at the Renaissance last week at a priceline.com rate. Superficially OK, but I prefer the Marriott. Odd situation at breakfast. My wife ate a la carte, I took continental. They only charged for my wife. I pointed out their error. (OK, but I did.) This caused a lot of confusion, and I eventually got a new check with the two breakfasts showing. Not a word of apology or thanks. Also, how much 'service' (tip) should I add for a self-service breakfast?
