Location Large Bathroom Comfort of the bed
At times the old smell
convenient location nice staff room was fairly clean restaurant good
court side was very noisy and prevented sleeping elevators dirty rooms not normally used had musty smell overpriced
restaurant was terrific
ice machine(s) too far from room and broken beds need replaced (we rolled to center)
The spacious common areas were enjoyable. The room and beds were very comfortable.
Breakfast was not included in the price.
We needed an off and on exit for the trip we were taking. This is a great location. The breakfast at the restaurant was very good. We also love the decor. I used to travel here for a yearly conference, and this brought back a lot of memories.
We were on the first floor, and it was a little noisy with cars outside. The room was a little stuffy.
the beds - although we requested a king and got 2 queens
thin walls - heard our neighbors and people in the hall.
The service was great. Lounge was relaxing. Nice size room (king size bed).
We had to be relocated to a second room due to water leaking from an access panel in the bathroom. The room we were moved to was not as comfortable or well appointed as the original room.
Comfy beds - a great nites sleep !!
Neat layout. Great breakfast
I had trouble with getting a room with king-bed inspire of booking about 2months before planned stay.I AM VERY UNHAPPY ABOUT THAT.
The hotel has a 24 hours shuttle. Perfect for 5:30 am flight.
We stay at the Desmond in August of each year and have always been very pleased with everything. Other than our other comments, we enjoyed our stayed.
we had a room in B building right on the courtyard. A convention was going on and it was so noisy in the room had trouble sleeping. Room air conditioner rattled and rolled and was very noisy. Elevator in B bldg. rug was dirty.
The amenities and staff service were excellent. The food was very good also. Although the hotel was very busy they went out of their way to accommodate my needs.
The only negative was the smell of dampness and mold in the room when I first arrived. Then it diminished as the AC ran for a couple of days.
Excellent service, variety of dining options on site. The design is quaint and full of charm.
Some common areas need some refurbishing.
Pool, hot tub, restaurant, staff, room
Breakfast of any kind was not included with the room. For the price they should have at least provided some kind of breakfast meal, even continental. Also no rooms with pets allowed. These two issues were a big negative, and that's why I wouldn't book there again.
Convenience. Did not have to leave hotel for anything. Services were all there, dining, bar, physical\ exercise, swimming. Television was excellent. Wakeup was perfect. Accomodation could not have been better. Hotel enployees were cordial and well informed. Will stay there on next trip to area, and would recommend to everyone who is going into that area.
Bar prices were a little high, more than in my home area. Otherwise everything was great
we were there as a large group (all separate bookings) for a family party. The location was very convenient.
The reservation staff -accidentally, I'm sure- ruined the surprise party by listing the names of guests with the same last name when my mother checked in. As a result, she learned at check-in that all her sons were coming for her b'day. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!!!!
I stayed at the Desmond years ago. The hotel continues to give quality service and the rooms were clean and well kept. Recommend
Very enjoyable stay for a family reunion/birthday. Kristen at front desk was very accommodating upon check-in, and I was very impressed she remembered my name on check out the next morning!
I loved the courtyard, especially having a room that had a balcony overlooking it. I liked the decor, so refreshing. Not the usual "hotel" look.
The restaurant had NO service for sunday morning. My husband waited 45 minutes for his food, which never arrived
convenience, comfortable furnishings, nice staff.
sound proofing between rooms -- it was a bit embarrassing to listen to very loud lovemaking in the middle of the afternoon from the room next door and to hear them even in the hallway!
The property was well kept and comfortable. Very nice Tavern and restaurants.
The room decor is a little dated, bathrooms could use an update but it was clean and functional.
Lovely hotel, excellent price and staff. Rooms and rugs need a bit of TLC.
easy check out
tired facilities; noisey location; expensive restaurants; remote location of room; slow check in process
