This is an older style hotel with beautiful grounds. They were out of standard rooms so got an upgraded one, with a separate sitting area. The room was nice, with lovely mosaic bath and shower. The sitting area came with an uncomfortable couch/bed with a musty fabric cover that I didn't want to really touch with bare skin. The air conditioner did nothing but make noise so it was extremely hot so it was hard to wear clothes so couldn't really sit on the couch. Had to relax in bed only. The layout was such that you could only watch TV from the couch so that was a problem. Fine, thought to read my book, but the nightstand light was a ridiculously dim energy efficient bulb, so that was impossible. Out of desperation, I removed the oversized lampshade and could then read a bit. There was a cool breeze at night, but no screens and my New England instincts wouldn't allow me to go screenless. But they had a substantial bug spraying event every evening so I suppose that may have been possible, except for when the spraying was going on. The restaurant was nice and the butter fish was good, though smallish. I did put in a request to fix the air conditioner and dead phone, but the ac was not fixed while I was staying there. The phone was, though.
Had to checkout early to catch a plane, but there was no desk staff on duty yet. The security guys and bellboys collaborated and talked to somebody on the phone and managed to check me out. Much appreciated.
