3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
They gave me what probably the only view of Lake Merritt from the window. Thankyou. MISERLY: I had to ask for cups for the room, and there was only one towel each in the room: no washcloths or hand towels. When I went down to get more towels, (We stayed 3 days), they then tried to give me 2 wash cloths! There was no coffee in the room, but I was assured there would be coffee in the lobby. Sunday AM I went down to get a cup and the 1 thermos was empty. I understand that, because of the homeless encampment right across the street, they might have wanted to restrict access to supplies, but I am a PAYING CUSTOMER, and I should not have had to ask for amenities.
