    • Liked: Cleanliness

    Not all the hotel staff were friendly and some of them were fairly hostile. The room was a suite but the living room was next to the lift and noisy! Room overlooked a wall.

    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The heating system did not work properly and I had to change my room . I waited over a half hour for someone to check on the broken thermostat and finally said change my room when no one was coming. The second room still had a heating issue. One of the faucets in the bathroom came off in my hand. Charged an extra amentity fee which said there w as hot chocolate but when I wanted it in the afternoon I was told none was available. A time was ne ver told at check-in. In fact I asked for a printed copy of what my $21 covered and was pointed to a sign on the counter. I had the. breakfast buffet and the fresh orange juice was sour. Mentioned to the attendant as she argued that it was. I did say something to the front desk who said they could not do anything about it . Breakfast was so so and the room was dark. All in all In was not a good experience. Needing to keep a window wide open in cold December seemed to be the norm at the hotel as both rooms had it upon entering.
