Vacuum used by maint crew for a plumbing problem was dirtier on the outside than on the inside. Hall carpets need better cleaning. Lavatory faucet in 611 was loose from the granite top. Thermostatic feature of shower faucet is not working. Often hot water came out of hot line and cold line at the shower and lavatory. Shower head does not have a good setting. Shower head needs to be simpler and more effective.
Door key cards are unreliable. Food in Tropicana dining room can be good at times and very average to poor at other times. Breakfast was reliably good.
Pool was good fun and relaxing.
Dinner was variable. Final dinner on the 17th floor restaurant was good. Hotel very well adapted for service to the large Caravan tours. Drum beats from Cultural Center 3 blocks away can keep you awake at night until 3 or 6 am.
