The bed, shower and room were all good. However, when we checked in we were told that towels would be delivered soon. This was unwelcome because we were at a transit hotel and wanted to get some immediate rest. After waiting approximately 30 minutes, I went in search of someone to provide the towels so that we wouldn’t be disturbed later. I succeeded in getting the towels, informed the person of our room number, and placed the ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on the door. Soon after, there was a knock on the door and the offer of towels. Given that this is an airport transit hotel catering to very tired people seeking sleep at all hours, I suggest that the front desk does not send guests to a room that is not 100% ready and that staff are trained to respect the ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign.
