Room was very comfortable -- very comfortable bed, extra pillows, etc. The staff was especially helpful and pleasant.
Unfortunately, the soundproofing was not effective. I could hear the ice machine dump its ice in the room next door and sounds from the hallway. When I couldn't hear the TV over the AC, I hesitated to turn the sound up to where I could hear it because I did not want to disturb the room next door. (I wish they would figure out some way to allow people to use headphones to listed to TV late at night.)
The bathroom had not exhaust fan -- at least, not one that I could find.
While the in-room coffee maker made very good coffee, it was not under a light and I had difficulty operating it until I asked a cleaning lady to move it to under a light.
On the positive side, the breakfast buffet was quite reasonably priced and included someone making omlets on request. The buffet wasn't huge, but it had want I wanted.
The hamburger sandwich (they have a more elegant name for it) came with a nice selection of toppers, such as mushrooms, onion shreds, three different kinds of cheese, etc. Nice. Only the onion rings were not to my taste.
