I can not blast the hotel because compared to the last place we stayed (the now closed St. Helen which was one of the dirtiest hotels we ever stayed at) it was a charm. Our room was clean, all though having no windows; it felt as if we were sleeping in a closet. For the most part the staff was friendly. There was an instance where I felt I was being challenged as I was just repeating what was printed on our Travelocity confirmation sheet about our room.
I read the review about the 'coffee Nazi' and had to laugh, for we felt the same way on the first day. But I can't blame the woman herself for she is probably just doing her job and fighting to keep it. The problem I have with it is from the hotel front desk. Upon check-in they should let everyone know to 'please ask the attendant for coffee as opposed to helping yourself'. This would have avoided the confusion in the morning when getting coffee. After speaking with the lady serving coffee I discovered she is actually a very nice and friendly person.
Also there was some (what appeared to be) blood stains on one of our fresh towels.
I guess that is the laundry service's fault and not really the hotels and I am sure it's not the first time it's ever happened....just a little gross.
