I recently paid for a suite in the Annex to celebrate my husband's 30th birthday with friends. While the check in service and front desk staff were incredibly nice and helpful I was a little put off with what I found in the Annex.
Granted, I know the Annex is going for the whole Art Deco 70s era style, but there were parts of our room that looked like they hadn't been updated (at all since the 70s). There was a random walk in closet that still had one whole wall that was exposed drywall. Furthermore there was in some of the heating vents loose drywall that came down and were blocking the air from entering the room - definitely seemed like a hazard.
Finally we were delayed getting our room because I believe the party before us may have trashed the room. Why do we say this, well there were some odd stains on the walls of the suite, and some spots when we arrived where the carpeted floor was, well... sticky. Honestly I would have rather them put us up in nicer rooms while they gave the suite a proper deep cleaning than stay in a room where who-knows-what was on the floor before they gave us the room.
Other than that good location - fabulous staff. Just not sure it was worth the money that I forked over. I was expecting a little bit nicer.More
