If the hotel is going to claim to be a luxury establishment and charge accordingly, then they need to renovate the interior and hire/train representative staff. The guest rooms look worse than a motel and the Manzanita restaurant looks likes a diner at a rest stop. From the old orange carpet which look like it is at least 50 years old to the old furniture with chips, breaks, and scratches the rooms are totally aesthetically displeasing. Room service takes 1.5 hours. And you have to call again for utensils, salad dressing, etc.
One staff member, NIELSON in particular irked us to no end with his ineptitude, lack of sincerity, and all around terrible attitude. I repeat, his name was NIELSON. He is not worthy of working anywhere in the hotel industry. He is damaging the brand and reputation in so many ways. He needs to be terminated immediately. At check in, he gave us wrong directions and sent us on a wild goose chase all over the hotel to try to get to a an unimpressive event called "Smores and Stories". He also denied us the upgrade given to American Express Centurion cardholders by stating that the hotel was fully committed. He didn't even check the availability before giving us this obnoxious answer. By the way, the next day we inquired with the Guest Services manager and he upgraded us immediately. Most egregious of all was Nielson forgot to order my niece's birthday cake when the purpose of the trip was to celebrate her birthday!
