Hi, SLT08! Thank you for your stay and leaving us feedback. It is always a pleasure to host an IHG Rewards Club member! It is great to know that you find our check-in staff commendable. I am sorry that there were some issues with housekeeping services and the cleanliness of the room. We listen closely to our guests' experience and make them our guide towards better satisfaction.
