Hotel staff are world class but the main restaurant service was horrible.

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Andre Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel staff was excellent. Personable and willing to go above and beyond to ensure I had all the help I needed. When I was unsure of where the amenities were in the room, they showed up at my door unprompted to help me out. I also had an issue with the lock on my suitcase, and the concierge and maintenance folks came through to help me fix the issue. Big thumbs up to the hotel staff. Where my experience went poorly was in the main restaurant. The service staff there were really awful. My group dined there twice and the first night the service was ok but the second night was really poor. As the service charge was included in the bill because we were a large group, the server really didn't put any effort at all in making the experience enjoyable. We were ignored half the time, food was practically thrown on the table, no one came to ask if we needed anything more, and despite informing the staff several times that we required separate bills, coming from different companies, we were still stuck with a single invoice. Even after we asked again to have the bill split up, the server was completely unhelpful and insisted that we do the calculations ourselves. The 18% service charge was completely unreasonable given how terrible the service was. Considering this is supposed to be a five-star restaurant, I was very shocked at how bad we were treated.

Parking & Resort Fees are Outrageous on top of VERY expensive hotel

$25 to park my own car? And then add in the resort fee of $40? Well I won't be coming back until something is done about that.

Overall good experience. Very disappointed in-room dining isn’t available during the week. Having to go to Limewood for meals with my hectic schedule is an inconvenience.
