DO YOU WANT PRIVACY OR ROOM HEAT?....
Pretty nice staff. Two staff members were very excellent! Very nice exterior and interior lobby. The rest of the hotel looks old and dreary- especially the hallways and doors to the rooms. The heater in my room was VERY BAD unfortunately. I set off the fire alarm trying to get heat by using the shower as steam to heat it up. The rooms have a very old system of radiator heaters right by the window, but they also have very large heavy curtains that cover up the heaters. You have to make a choice, Do I want heat for my room, or do I want privacy? You don't get both because the curtain blocks the heat from the heater. Why they don't have shorter curtains that don't block heat while still giving privacy, I do not know...
