Upon first arriving, loved the location of the hotel. After that, it all went downhill. When we got to our room they asked us if we wanted a larger room at the same cost. Great....or so we thought. It turns out that the room had a number of problems. First was that the AC (or heater, depending upon the time of day) would constantly trip the circuit breaker, so we were constantly calling the front desk to turn flip the breaker. Then it turns out the water for this room (501 in case you're wondering) was on the same water main as the kitchen. So most of the time we'd never get any hot water because the kitchen had used it up. At times we wouldn't get any water at all--the faucets would just sputter. Lighting in the room was horrible. At night you couldn't see what was in the wardrobe because there was just one small celing light. The breakfast in the morning was just passable. I don't eat a lot in the morning, so what there was sufficed. Except for the fact that the hot food was cold, and therefore a bit unappetizing. I wouldn't stay there again. I can handle the electricity outages and even asking them to come flip a breaker switch, but the whole issue of 4 days with just barely flowing water at the best of times turned me off.
