While the rooms are clean, they are a bit noisy and there is a lot of light from the hallway. The check in process was OK, but the girl that checked us in bordered on rude. We got to the hotel about 2:30 on Wednesday and were told the room was not ready. We asked if there was a place to get a coffee and were told that the restaurant didn't have any at that time of day. We checked in at 4 pm and almost could not walk down the hall due to the beds in the hallway and linens on the floor. I was served brown, rotting salad as was my tablemate. The food in the restaurant was terribly salty. We had salmon that was served with rice and a medley of roasted garlic, onions and??? Mushrooms.that were VERY salty. We mentioned this to the restaurant manager.
The hotel knew about this event for at least a year, and was still understaffed. Also, the only people that seemed to feel a need to hustle were the maintenance guy, and Youssef in the restaurant....kudos to them. The management here needs to clean up its act. Will mot return and would not recommend.
