The room we checked into, was recently renovated. The new carpet/glue smell was so strong it burned my eyes and nose. We had to air out the room before we could go to sleep. There was paint on the floor and the door handle in the bathroom.
The first shower I took, the little shelf in the shower feel to the floor and when I notified the front desk, nothing was done about it, before we checked out a day and half later.
A two long metal screw with sharp threads lying on the floor in the bathroom.
These details and lack of attention to them gives this hotel a lower rating.
Breakfast was an average Hampton Breakfast, if you don't want sugar or fat, you have very little choice.
Overall the team here was very nice and hospitable and the hotel was in a great location.
