First, the front desk was great-- Dan and Adam were on point and very responsive.
The room was ok, a bit older, but obviously the property was trying to maintain some standards.
The AC was fine, the linens ok.
Staff gave me a Emmet-view room as I asked.
Areas to improve:
The refrigerator (I asked to be in a room with a fridge) looked as if it had never been cleaned.
My sheets were not changed on the second day, you may need to request that. I'mnot sure why that annoyed me, I don't change sheets everday at home, but I like fresh sheets while traveling.
The internet had a poor connection, but worked 65% of the time.
There were long brown hairs on the shower walls (not mine).
Breakfast was a disappointment (boiled eggs, mystery meat, cold biscuits), just a step above continental. Go on and splurge, management. You have a good set-up.
With more focus on housekeeping, this hotel could easily be above average
