Room was somewhat dated. Valet service scraped the front of my car and failed to notify me. I did not notice until I parked at home. Tried to contact the hotel to notify (through the reservation line) without success - routed to VM multiple times

Room was non-smoking, but hallways reeked like cigarette smoke and animal pee. Luckily, the room did not.

It was a very clean room. Good location.
Other Comments
We did not get the room we booked. I noticed that we had a small room when we got in. I also noticed that we ended up with a queen size bed (instead of King) and with no balcony. I went downstairs to check if we were put in a wrong room by mistake. I was told by the receptionist that 'when you use a third party to book rooms your room choice is not guaranteed'. Which I found very strange. He told me that they don't have any available rooms, so they couldn't move us. When I wanted to talk to a hotel manager, he went inside an office, came back few minutes later to confirm his previous statement, but offered $20 off. I had to take it since the next option was to leave the hotel and look for another place (or go home) in a downpour. This experience left me with bad taste with this hotel and with this deal. I made the reservation very long time ago and I expected to get what I asked for. Other than that, the room was very clean and the valet parking staff were nice.
