Comments: Probably one of the worst hotels that play with inventory to avoid giving out suite upgrades (suites available just prior to check in, key strokes after mentioning I'd like a suite upgrade and then no suites during check in, and magically after check in those suites are for sale again). Agents flat out lie and manipulate inventory. I was told there was no inventory when online there was clearly bookable inventory in almost every higher category (I essentially had to book it to show them). I was eventually given a suite with one window (in the living room) that faces an alley. That's right, no window in the bedroom. I don't even think that room should be allowed to be occupied it was so ridiculous. After a stern discussion with management was given a proper suite the next day. I'll avoid this place going forward.
