Hotel vey 80"s with pink and green decor in flourescent-lit bedrooms. Breakfast good but food otherwise drab with a lot of carbs/sausage/fried foods (more veggies/salads please). All this would have been tolerable as this was a business trip but the hotel just does not cater to business travellers. My computer had broken and I needed to print a document on a memory stick so I could review it. I went to the front desk to ask if they could print it. Apparetly, it is against their rules to print from a memeory stick, the document must be e-mailed to them. I was told I could go upstairs to the business center and e-mail it. When I got to the business center, there was no one there to help and the CPU's were locked in the desk, so I couldn't plug my memeory stick in. I went back doenstairs and told the girl at the desk my story and asked if she could print my document (again). At this point, the girl insisted memory sticks could be plugged in upstairs and it was just against the rules for her to print it for me. As I'd just been upstairs and knew there wasn't any where to plug in my stick, we went back and forth with her insisting that I was wrong ansd she was right. So I went back upstairs, took a photograph of the set up in the business center and asked her how I was supposed to get the document off the stick. She then conceeded that there was no way to do that and she just couldn't help me because it was "against the rules". What about the rules that hotels help thier guests with problems? This was not a particularly difficult one - she couldn't have cared less and she was obnoxious. I had to produce a photograph to prove I was right? My advice, it you need to do business, DON"T stay here. Don't stay here for pleasure either, unless you're into 80's decor and stodge.
