My second morning I was unable to shower because the water was cold. When I complained to the front desk I was told that due to low bookings they were trying to conserve resources. I appreciate conservation mindset, but do not think that I should have to forgo a shower in order for them to save money. On a positive, this particular hotel offers the best hot breakfast buffet! They always have plenty of food, right up to closing time. No conservation in that department.
