When I made the reservation I was certain to explain that we needed a King bed and a sofa sleeper for two children. They quoted $89 per night. Expensive for Hanford but perhaps worth it. First problem was when we checked in I asked about the sofa sleeper just to be sure. They said there was no sofa bed in the room and would I like a room with two queens. I said no I wanted what I had reserved, a king with a sofa sleeper for two. They then suggested the executive suite with a king in one room and a sofa in the other. I said that would be great and how much did that cost. They said $119 per night (with the AAA discount). So we bit the bullet and went up to our room. Unfortunately, the second problem was it wasn't a sofa sleeper for two, it was a single. So we still didn't have beds for four. So we called down to the desk and they offered to send up a roll-away, for an additional $6 per night. Now we were up to $126 per night or $70 more than I thought we were going to pay for our two-night stay. Oh well, what choice did we have?
The good news - the room was clean, the beds were comfortable. Pillows were good. They need a hook in the bathroom. There should be a law that all hotel bathrooms come with a hook for hanging garments. The only alternatives are the floor or the toilet - ewww.
The breakfast was ok. Not great but not bad. Front desk staff was hard to find. Often they were away from the desk in a back office.
Two common complaints about Hanford - the train wakes you up all night and the water smells. I didn't experience either of these issues at the Sequoia. Room was relatively quiet and the water didn't smell.
If we ever have to return to Hanford we will probably stay there again.
