Introduction: I was part of a large group tour and had no choice as to room preference. I was assigned a handicap room by the elevator, my least preferred location.
The Room: The spacious room had a nice décor, good furniture and an LG flat screen TV. There was no easy chair or desk, just a table with two chairs. The lighting could have been better. The room contained a safe and refrigerator.
The Bathroom: NOTHING functioned properly in the bathroom. (1) The bathtub wouldn't stop dripping. I made sure the water was tightly turned off. Didn't help. I then turned to the shower position to see if the dripping would stop. It didn't. Also, every several minutes the drain would gurgle. Drip, drip, drip, gurgle, gurgle, drip, drip, drip. I shut the door to see if that would mute the sound. It didn't. Drip, drip, drip, gurgle, gurgle. (2) Being a handicapped room, there was no counter and the sink did not have much depth. It did not drain well and the sink backed up; not good when it wasn't very deep to begin with. (3) And now to the toilet. When flushing, the water would not stop running unless you manually raised the flush handle. Just about the most dysfunctional bathroom I've encountered. But, hey, the toiletries were nice.
Why Didn't I Change Rooms? I was part of a group tour and instructed to leave my luggage inside the room for pickup by the hotel staff in the morning. I feared there might be a communications gap and my luggage would be "lost" for continuation of the trip if I moved, assuming a room was even available.
