Location, Service Dinner
Very noisy air con. Construction work at hotel. Breakfast
easy access, lovely restaurant and close to the center.
room was small and there was no coffee carafe in our room.
The bed and bedding was very nice. Lots of pillows of various firmness, but loved that everything was so soft and comfy and felt like home. Truly one of best hotel sleeping experiences I've had in a long time! Every one of the staff that I encountered were friendly and helpful. The bathroom was small, but beautiful and the rain shower head was amazing! The room service from the Italian restaurant was wonderful. I would definitely stay at the Sainte Claire Hotel again.
Construction during the day -which I was told to expect during certain hours on the floor below me, was distracting when I was studying. The noise stopped at the expected time, and the renovations will be worth it!
Awful smell in the lobby Bar closes at 10pm, unable to obtain a drink after this time, not in the bar or in your room.
Staff was friendly
They have cobstruction from 9 to 5 which is essentially not stop jack hammers! Could not work or sleep.
The bathroom was not very clean, and the tub was all chipped up. The walls were so thin I could hear the TV and then guests in the next room talking. And a lot of traffic walking up and down the halls.
Great downtown location Beautiful lobby and restaurant Restful rooms Good shower
Incredibly slow service at breakfast - 45 minutes for a fried egg, latte, and the bill is too long! Restaurant staff were inexperienced, front desk staff did not know the local restaurants. Business center printer had been disconnected from the computers and no one knew how to fix it. In-room coffee maker was broken.
Lovely old building in central location
Noise. No sleep at all 1st night. Woken up next night at 2am by guests returning. Coffee/tea in room no facility for making same. Ask at desk never received anything. Paper cups(if you had a kettle)
I love the Sainte Claire because of it's central location. It's comfort and decor is beautiful and classy! It also brings back sweet memories of a dear and special friend.
Parking of course is always the slight issue in the Downtown area. Also, I'm not too sure if the Sainte Claire has a pool/spa?
Front desk reception excellent this time.
Because no early breakfast, have to go to Marriott for breakfast at 0630. For some reason, all light fixtures were unplugged when I got to room - awkward to plug in the two I needed. Remove washcloth and not replace it. Ice bucket not cleaned - liner not replaced.
The staff is extraordinary--polite and responsive to needs before you even tell them you have any. The restaurant, Il Fornaio, is excellent. The rooms are comfortable and the sheets were starched perfection.
The air conditioning fan was a bit noisy. The fitness center is nothing more than the minimum required by a hotel of this class.
Location Renovated rooms Free wifi
Vintage touches in lobby and baths. Staff helpful Great location for convention center
Room service trays a bit tacky, brown plastic, scratched plates and glasses.
Staff/service were excellent. Convenient location. Upgraded room to suite-style room. Enjoyed the decor. Room service for dinner= Good Italian Food.
Thin walls- could hear people in neighboring room. Hotel is being renovated maybe that will help?
Staff and restaurant great!
Bathroom small and needed modernization.
the hotel is stylish and clean, the staffs are friendly and helpfull
there was noise in the night, the two beds are too small for 3 of us...
Loved the location, you have to pay 29 Dollars for valet parking but that's ok! :)
Our next door neighbors were rude.
We were close to many restaurants and walking distance to SAP Center where we saw Justin Timberlake. Front desk staff offered suggestions for eating and cocktails. Very helpful!
Room, Il Fornio and area
The location was the best aspect of this hotel as well as the service from the staff.
I could hear the neighbors talking at night, the refrigerator was loud, the room was not as top quality as I thought it would be. I was disappointed because I spent a lot of money for a 2 star room at the St. Claire. Wifi was only free for a day and no free breakfast.
Historic boutique hotel within walking distance to all things downtown! We were upgraded to a remodeled jr suite and it was beautiful! Not huge but cozy and well done!
Great location. Quiet. Clean and comfortable. And the staff is extremely friendly. Best service I've ever experienced.
The facilities are kinda old. And the AC could get really loud.
The old world elegant look of the building. I knew this was an older hotel and was prepared for it (hotel is in the midst of a renovation). I booked a King Superior room and paid a little more to get more space. I liked the ceiling detail/mural in the bathrooms. Staff friendly and helpful. Good value.
Had to change rooms on arrival because air conditioning sounded like an airplane coming in for landing. Second room better but direction of air flow from AC uncomfortable and could not be adjusted. First room had nice street view. Second room had back/roof view. Wake up call was a loud knock on the door "wake up!?" Corner location awkward for car pickup.
They just renovated the 6th floor, I was lucky enough to stay in one of the rooms, while the rest of the hotel is still being renovated. It was outstanding! beautifully done. Beds were very comfortable, really enjoyed the waterfall shower. Good location for the Jazz festival, everything was walking distance.
Didn't care that you were charged for vallet parking, $30 extra to your room. Other hotels I have stayed at, I've never been charged.
The newly remodeled bathrooms with the rain shower. It was so luxurious! The soaps and shampoos were nice too. The bed was so comfortable and I loved the new bedding and curtains. I hope when it becomes part of the Wyndham group that it maintains the same charm. It is so historic and wonderful!
