A few years ago I started staying in chain hotels in Europe. I had bad experiences with locally owned hotels that turned the air conditioning off from the office, and adjusted the temperature from the office, and kept the room too warm to be comfortable. Therefore a few years ago I started staying in chain hotels, and have not had a problem with hot rooms again, until here.
The first day I went to the office and told them, my a/c was not turned on, and the desk clerk said he would turn it on. Later it was still hot, and I asked him again, and he said he forgot but would do so. That night it was hot andI came down and talked to the night clerk, and he came up to the room, and said the reason it was so hot was that the heat from the day was trapped in the room, and if I would open the windows for awhile, and then close them, it would cool down. We did that, and it stayed hot all night.
The next night I came down again, and the desk clerk came up and checked, and then brought a fan up. The fan simply blew hot air around, and did no good, and we had to open the windows to be bearable.
The next night it was hot again, but too hot outside to open the windows, and the last night it was the hottest of all.
Incidentally, the breakfast room was even warmer than the bedroom. I noticed that in the lobby they sometimes left the doors open to try to get some air in from the outside.
Other than that, the hotel was very nice, was conveniently located, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was simply too hot to be comfortable. The guests we saw were practically all Europeans, and Europeans seem to be more aclimated than we are to hot hotels.
I would recommend this hotel in the Winter, early Spring or late Fall, when the weather is cool, but would not recommend it in the Summer, late Spring or early Fall, because it is simply too warm to be comfortable.
