Check-in was quick and easy. This was a last-minute booking so perhaps the jacuzzi suite was the only thing remaining. The room did not have a flat screen tv, but instead an old style in a heavy armoire that faced neither the bed or the couch in the adjoining suite. There was no in-room coffee maker, and after asking 3 people one very nice staffer brought me one - but no coffee, creamer, cup, etc. I asked him to have housekeeping leave it later as I was on a right schedule to leave. That evening there were still no coffee items, so I asked for them at the front desk. I was given one packet of coffee and when I asked about sugar and creamer I was told "they're all over there" and pointed toward the breakfast area. Day three, still no coffee or accoutrements. Same thing on day four and five. Employees smoked while standing outside of pool area. Guests were allowed to smoke inside pool area. There was a strange brown stain under the sink in the bathroom that changed daily but never quite got cleaned up. The air conditioner is push-button, not digital, so there's little to adjust. The doors to the linen closet/laundry room were generally always open and appeared to be floor to ceiling with dirty linens piled in the floors. The mini fridge froze everything I put in it. However, the rest of the room was clean, the bed was comfortable and I had an abundance of pillows. It's a very large, spacious room and the proximity to downtown is fantastic. I understand there are some updates occurring and the dated decor was not a major concern. Even though the breakfast doesn't start until 6:30, the lobby coffee was always ready by 5:45 or 6, so that helped since there was no in-room coffee. In my experience there was one five-star employee who tried his best and a few that tried to do as little as possible. I would give it one more chance.
