Negatives: Terrible unfriendly and unhelpful staff. Extremely loud and busy.

Elizabeth group September 21, 2023
Positives: It's like they slapped plaster on a crack and called it a "boutique" hotel. Nothing about this hotel I liked from the decor of the red lips in the rooms that screamed trafficking. Staff was nice and responsive to my safety concerns but gave me a food credit which was useless since the restaurant food was not good and I was ignored for 15 min and left. Manager couldn't figure out I probably needed a discount or refund for this experience.
Negatives: Everything was bad. The quality control on the rooms was non existent. Door lock that is in the inner part of the door into room was installed over the door. So you cannot lock. The mattress was torn up. The new room they moved me also had numerous issues (it costs $2 for a zip for the tub and it overflowed). The mental vent was missing in the shower area. Friends in another room had similar issues. Concierge is a joke, there wasn't really concierge. The restaurant you actually have to physically go in and order you can't just call and then go and pick up the food, oh and I waited 15 min and finally left.
Worst hotel on my list

Positives: Loved the location. The view of Lake Michigan from our room was amazing
Negatives: Lots of spiders especially on the 7th floor lookout area. But most of all I never received a final bill from them. My card got charged but I would’ve liked an itemize  invoice to she what all I got charged
