old hotel under renovation
Posted Jan 12, 2017
We were not informed that the hotel was under construction/renovation. There was quite a bit of mess and noise, and inconvenience with only one elevator available. The workers had exclusive use of one elevator, but when it was at the lobby, the other car would not come.
Our room-- newly renovated, we were told-- was larger than normal (a plus), but clearly an old room with the same drawbacks. The few electric outlets are poorly placed. The heater rattled and clunked all night. It took a long time to get hot water to the shower. Our kids' room had a malfunctioning key-card reader (door lock); after three tries with redone cards, they switched them to a different room. Wifi was slow and not password protected.
Breakfast was late-- we were done before the hot food was put out. The hot food was meager. By the time our kids came down (half-way through the announced breakfast hours) the hotel was out of coffee and 2% milk.
