Glasses were dirty, ice bucket had substance in it. No breakfast available on Sunday. Short supply of toilet paper in the bathroom and extremely poor water pressure in shower!

The turning point was when a fire alarm went off in the early morning hours. I had been sick so I was up periodically throughout the night.... More
