HIE is one of my top choices in hotels, however this particular one did not impress me. The first room I was given has serious issues, disgusting ones. It looked like it had been partially made, but it wasn't. The beds were badly made, not tucked correctly and looked like they had been laid on already. In the bathroom was an unflushed toilet full of poop! We walked right out and went to the desk manager who quickly appologized and gave us another room on the 3rd floor. Getting off the elevator I noticed a smell, it seemed like this was a smoking floor, although smoking was not allowed on any floors. The room also smelled funny like it had been smoked in previously. My wife decided it was ok so we stayed, but i wanted to go complain again. The A/C unit looked like it had some sort of fungus growing in it, which could have been the smell, not sure. I didn't notice that part until the next morning after we had been breathing it in all night.
I doubt I will come back to this location. 2 bad rooms in the same night is not a good ratio.
