The room was nice and the bathroom was kind of tiny. The housekeeping staff rudely awoke us by walking past the room complaining about having to climb up and down the stairs. My room mate and I were not pleased with their loud voices. Upon telling the front desk there was no apology made.

The front desk clerk asked that we call in the morning, but when we called before we were leaving, the front desk was closed. When I called after the race, from the... More

At around 9:00pm other guests entered our room while we were there because the front desk mistakenly re sold the room. The front desk called a few minutes later and apologized.
