First I must start by saying that the customer service was outstanding. We had reason to find out. When we checked in, we inquired whether the room had a balcony, and was told it did not. After parking the car the young lady told us a balcony room upgrade was available for an additional fee. We chose to take the room sight unseen after having already brought our bags to the non-balcony room. Upon check-in we were made aware that there would be a $250 charge if we smoked in the room. Neither of us are smokers so no problem. The problem arose when we opened the door to the balcony room. Solid wall of cigarette smoke. We even found a make-shift ashtray and someone's lighter on the balcony! We told the front desk and they took off the upgrade charge and had someone come and change the linen. We propped the door to the hallway open as well as the balcony door to air it out. Long story short, no go. And after we closed the room back up to go to dinner we found that the air conditioner did not work either. The young lady at the front desk moved us back to our original room and was very cordial. So, great service, but the rooms were small and needed a little maintenance.
