Beautiful furnishings, amazing shower, bar that has great views

Good 6.0
Hotel was in a great location but for the cost , I found the staff, rooms and overall experience very underwhelming . The staff that check you in basically just hand room keys over and say your room is “123”. I find that the customer service at other hotels is far exceeding this one. The room was not super clean, stains on bedding and the thermostat was not working in the room (this was discovered too late at night to try and call to have fixed). I will say the bar/ restaurant staff and manager were really great and eager to please and accommodate !!!

Good location
Was there with my daughter to tour Pitt University. It is a super location for that, the only issue was they are renovating the property next door so they have the sidewalks closed on both ends of the hotel, which forces you to have to cross a fairly busy road right in the middle. One time we had a valet guy help us cross and that was much appreciated, all the other times we were on our own and it was surprisingly nerve-wracking. I'll wait to stay again until that's been finished. Room was very nice, paid extra for a corner room which had floor to ceiling windows, it was also a handicapped-accessible room which I didn't request, so it had extra seats in the shower and lots of hand rails but if you needed that I suppose that'd be a good thing. I requested two beds and only got one, mentioned it on the check in survey they send but no one followed up. Housekeeping made the beds and refreshed the towels but didn't give any more waters, didn't refill the mini bar, didn't give any more shampoos or soaps, didn't clean the floors. The valet/luggage help is on the bottom floor, reception at the top, we checked in at about 2pm and our room wasn't ready so we had to take our luggage back down to the bottom floor to be stored and go back up to their restaurant, I was surprised they required the guest to ride the elevator all the way down and back up again. Overall the hotel was very nice and in a good location, but the service aspect needs some attention.
