I was put up here for a film festival and while it was fine and suited the purpose of the visit, I must say it's a very weird and bizarre place. I'd have never picked this place on my own. The "double" accommodation room is made up of two double/full-sized beds (not Queens) and a fold out sofa. I imagine... More

While I'm glad your needs were met, I have to say I'm a little confused by what you mean when you say "weird." I apologize that your room wasn't the Ritz, but several tenants lease apartments here, and every suite is going to be different from the next. Hope all is well. Best, Valerie, General Manager More

Glad we found the Duke Tower condominium to stay for a few days to visit our son and his wife nearby. The folks at the reception was very friendly and helpful.

The building and rooms are a little bit run down, but clean and efficient. The cable TV never worked well, and the kitchen had the most minimum needed for breakfast.

First of all, thank you for staying. I apologize that your room wasn't as well-kept as you had hoped. But I can assure you -- they are not all like that. These condos are all privately owned, so quality of your suite really depends on who is leasing each individual condo. That said, we'd it if you gave us another... More

If the problems with the pool were disappointing enough to drive you away, then I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. However, fixing the acid levels in a pool takes a lot of effort, and for the safety of our guests, we must take the appropriate time and care to correct the problem. This is not the norm, so I ask...
