I booked this hotel months in advance for a five night stay. The grounds are nice, but the room was literally in a basement. I knew there would be a problem when I checked in on the first floor and they said to get to the room and needed to go down a flight of stairs. The room is literally a dungeon - no ventilation, no view, and the window is eye level with the ground, two concrete barriers on either side, and a disgusting view of the parking lot. Whoever said there was a view was not in one of these rooms. I might as well checked into Alcatraz because it feels like a prison.
When I informed the front desk that I wanted a new room because this once was too stuffy, without air or circulation, and completely unacceptable, "Robert" told me that this is the room I booked - a double queen. Where in "double queen" is there any indication of the type or location of room this is?? I am not happy, and am forced to stay here now for 5 nights - unhappy, P.O'd, and never, ever, ever will stay here again. And as an avid traveler, open to less than comfortable conditions sometimes, would never recommend this to anyone. Ever! Beware!
