I find it strange that in all the advertising for this hotel, they include the phrase "brand new." There is nothing brand new there. We were at the hotel for a wedding this past weekend. The roof-top room where the reception occurred was nice. Our rooms were not.
It was cold this weekend, but they hadn't "turned the heat on" through the radiators, so we all had to have space heaters in our rooms, only some of which actually worked. The bedspreads in the rooms looked like they came from my Aunt's closet cica 1972. There had clearly been a remodel of the bathrooms. That was clear because the holes in the walls and wallpaper where the old fixtures were still existed and had not been filled in or wall-pappered over. The TV had knobs that you had to turn. Seriously. The blinds didn't cover the entire window.
The restaurant was equally bad. Someone should explain to the wait staff that if you order an appetizer or soup, it should come first, especially when you ask twice to have it first. They should also get a menu with a list of ingredients, since every time I ate at the restaurant, the staff didn't know what was on the salad or what came with the dinners.
The front desk staff was consistently friendly, unlike the bar staff who looked downright hostile most of the time.
I'm not sure what the other choices are in Punxsutawney, but I wouldn't stay here again.
