Not worth the stay and reeks of weed
they advertise air conditioning, they don’t have it. Our room reached 80 degrees even though the temp was set to 65 in the room. When I called they sent someone to our room to open the window with a block of wood. They advertise room service yet no menu online or in the room to be able to order anything, no bath robes, slippers, small luxuries at all. When the engineer did come to our room at 2am to open the window bc I was sweating and overheating as a pregnant women he said “let’s hope that’s all you have to complain about” as he left. Which made me feel super uncomfortable. My partner and I work remotely and the wifi had better connection in the hallway then it did in the room. We kept getting disconnected from our work. I normally would never have an issue with weed smell but I called and checked they are a non smoking hotel with signs posted EVERYWHERE about fines and not smoking. Yet the employee’s smelled like weed, the hallways reeked of weed, and housekeeping would just spray floral stuff to try and mask it. I literally went out of my way to triple check that it wouldn’t be an issue at a “luxury” hotel because it makes me extremely nauseous. I spent so much time in the bathroom sick and over heating cause no room temp control unless I opened a heavy window. Just overall disappointed I’ve had better service and standards at a red roof inn.

The room was clean when we got there. The room was not cleaned before our second night. The a/c was not working but that wasn’t terrible because the weather was cool.

6/10 Good

The Millennium is a great Deco spot, but frayed around the edges. On this stay, I booked a superior room, advertised at over 300 square feet. It was far from that. The TV did not work properly and when I attempted to call the front desk about it, I found that the phone didn't work. The hotel did switch my room to a suite and that was ok. Overall, the hotel needs a capital infusion to earn a 4 star rating.
