I've stayed at this hotel many times over the past few years. The first thing you notice about this hotel is how clean it is when you walk through the front door. It smells nice and lemony fresh, and the front desk attendants are always smiling. Check in is very quick and easy, and the rooms are always clean and fresh. They're a little small, but if you're travelling alone, it's no problem really. Until recently, I've had no issues at all with this hotel. However, the past couple of times I've stayed there, I've had two complaints. First, the beds have recently begun to sag and get very lumpy. Also, the mattress pads they use are not "fitted", so they tend to bunch up during the night, making it very uncomfortable to sleep on them. I haven't had a very good night's sleep there in awhile, I kept trying to tell myself that it couldn't be the same with all the beds in the hotel, but unfortunately, it seems that it just might be the case. The other issue I've had is with the temperature control. It is pretty much impossible to get the room at the right temperature. It seems to take forever to get it cooled off, and then you wake up during the night with icicles hanging off your nose. I've tried everything I know, and I've even called down to the front desk, but it's just very hard to control the thermostat.
One other thing I've noticed... the cost of the room at this hotel is the same as a 4 star hotel in Birmingham. That just seems a little high, but maybe that's just me.
