How is this place anything above three stars?! Over the three day period that we stayed here there was no turndown service and no slippers or robes in the rooms.
I am also not a big guy and even for me the baths are tiny! The plumbing is also very noisy and warm water seems to come and go during showers.
In addition, during our last two days there was no coffee in the hotel due to a conference earlier the week that used all the stock. Seriously?! I still can't believe it!
Staff was great and location is good, but the basics that are missing should prevent this hotel from being rated higher than 3 stars. It should also prevent the hotel from justifying the price they charge for well below average ammenities.
