They charged me a $22 Wharf District Tax that wasn't disclosed in my price. Raising the price more than 10% when it's supposedly a known cost/tax that applies to every room. After complaining I was charged for a movie I never watched. They did remove that

The staff was meh. The additional charges and the cost of valet was ridiculous. The valet takes FOREVER to bring the car around. On top of that, the valet returned our car with a flat tire (it wasn't flat when I gave it to him). I wouldn't stay here a

The $58 a night parking fee. The $23.16 per night 'Wharf Amenity Fee'. It would be nice for you to disclose this stuff UP FRONT IN THE FEES or somewhere BOLD when booking. This came to an additional $176 for 2 nights....

Cost of valet parking is $60 for one night. Valet lot must be pretty far away, the valet guy took my ticket and said be back in 8 min. Not too awful, but maybe try to have more than 2 valet guys at check-out time. Also, a call ahead car retrieval.

The next lady who took the place of the woman who checked us in was very short and and acted put out because I asked for a flatter pillow. Glad the service man was not like her!

The staff were accommodating when I wanted to check out late. The location is right on the pier, which is this hotel's best quality (because of food and touristy things) and its serious downside (because of parking).
Bad Tags
The parking was over $50 per day at the hotel--nearly half the price of the room itself. This was a serious gotcha moment. I will never be going back.

It has separate buildings, and we were placed in a room away from the pool. When we shop for hotels, and choose the pool option, we expect to be able to use the pool without crossing the street to do so. Also, both rooms we used were old and need updates.
