Wowed initially by the hotel & rm. All & all, very clean with upscale touches here & there. Maybe somewhat picky, but here's what holds it back from a 4 or 5:
a. Desk way to high compared to chair height. An office chair that's adjustable would have made it workable for a computer
b. They have free coffee in the lobby in the morning. The 1 of 2 mornings I was there they ran out (& it wasn't that busy).
c. I was initially staying there 12 nights. You'd think they'd have 20+ hangers for pants & dress shirts, but only had about half what I needed. I called down for more. After 15 min. no one came. So called again to say leave them in the rm as I'll be stepping out.
d. Asked for 3 k cups of coffee in the rm daily vs 1 decaf, 1 tea & 1 coffee. They didn't follow through.
