Stayed here for 1 night. The front desk person when we checked-in was very robotic, impersonal, and seemed to be in a hurry to get rid of us. She spoke very good English so I'm sure this was not due to language barrier. She wasn't even smiling, for Pete's sake. I hope they realize they are running a business and not a government agency. I also found out when we got home that money was also stolen from me. It seems that someone went through my luggage when my boyfriend and I went out for dinner/drinks. I sent them an email to report this and told them that I'm not even expecting the money to be recovered but would appreciate if they investigate. I have not received any feedback to-date.
