We had booked a king room with a lake view for a night in Oct. of 2013. The carpet was filthy, lamp next to bed did not work, armchair was coming apart, tub safety strips were loose, tub drained very slowly, bed was soft & saggy & the windows through which there should have been a gorgeous view of the lake & ships was quite dirty. Upon checking out the following morning I spoke with the manager as I handed him this list of items needing attention. He was in complete agreement, much to my surprise, & did not charge us for the room. He said that the entire hotel was due to be remodeled & that within a year would be brought back to the standards that the traveler has grown to expect of Fitger's. While this was wonderful, it still does not explain why normal cleanliness should be forsaken when the traveler is paying extremely good money to stay in this historic hotel. So....wait until Oct. of 2014, if you can, to check it out.
