Things to do
Cons:When we got to the room we didn't have power for the lights or the ac so I called downstairs (the phone worked) and they informed me you have to insert your keycard in a slot by the door to get power. Weird but ok, I'll play along. After a couple hours of trying to get the ac to work and trying to sleep without it, I ended up calling the desk and having them take a look. They couldn't figure it out and moved us to a room right next door, which was an upgrade. The staff was great and helpful with the situation but the new ac didn't work much better. All in all, not a bad hotel. Great location, there was free breakfast we didn't get to enjoy, they opened my bottle of wine, and took great care of my complaint. However, there was a lot of construction which was a little weird to deal with and the ac is a huge thing for me. From the north and my house is constantly freezing.
Cons:Bed was hard. TV did not work well. No microwave. Thin walls so you can hear everything. No washcloths provided. Bottom entrance closes too early.
Cons:The fact that you could hear a conversation four rooms away.
Cons:Our room didn't have a window. Just a glass door leading to a shaft.
