The property was ok. It did not come with a convenience bar with the option to purchase soda, alcohol or water. There were cobwebs lining the ceiling and room did not have a microwave. The clock was still an hour ahead which gave the impression that cleaning staff was inattentive. Room service had cut back as an apparent budget decision by the hotel. The hotel was advertised as a four star but without room service it was really a 2 star missing microwave because the property relies on services like Uber eats and Door dash so reheating is must have amenity.
