We were shuttled here by the airline. If I had been in any position to change to a different hotel, I would have.
Upon arriving, we (myself and two teens) informed the clerk at the desk that we had run into a currency issue (as we had only Canadian funds on us) and that we would appreciate a snack as we had (at this point) gone hours without eating and had volunteered to take a later flight - thinking that perhaps we could grab a bite at the hotel - the lady very kindly offered to assist. I smiled and thanked her so much, explaining that I am hypoglycemic...and we had been feeding me sugar packets to pull me from a "dip". She returned with a little goody bag. It contained: ONE packet of 6 small crackers, ONE packet of a few small cookies, a snack size bag of chips, two bottles of water. All this for 3 adults!! I saw her give identical bags to other guests...one per person! I was in shock...but decided we could roll with it. We grabbed more sugar packets and then proceeded to our room.
As we arrived to our room, the strong smell in the hotel was already getting difficult to bear. I believe it can best be described as "musty". I didn't figure it would be a big deal, as we would only be there for about 4 hours. I was wrong. I was using my inhaler and awake all those 4 hours. It was the worst night EVER.
Upon waking to catch the shuttle back to the airport, we were still STARVING. The breakfast buffet was not yet open, and we were offered NOTHING to take along...unlike other another post I read where they were given something.
Needless to say...all in all it was awful. ...may not be for others that do not have health issues...or currency ones! ;)
BUT - the employees were very polite.
