I have been staying here on and off for eight years. I must say that is spite of its recent renovations the quality of the hotel has gone down. The most notable aspect of this is the quality of the sheets and the towels and the amenities. The sheets are middle of the range and the towels are thin, small and more suited to a YMCA. The amenities are non-existent in the bathroom. You have to call for cotton balls, a shower cap and there is the dispenser now is the bath for shampoo, conditioner and body wash. While I applaud the fact that this is a more environmentally friendly and economical way to provide these things, the dispensers are cheap and the product the same. The free wine and beer hour has become a nightmare. You hardly can get into the lobby, the noise level that of a bar and there is nothing gracious about it. The coffee maker in the bathroom is cheap, there is aspartamene for substitute sugar and powdered milk for your coffee. If I wanted a holiday inn I would stay at one. The one amazing thing about the hotel is its staff who cannot do enough to make your stay a pleasant one. For a hotel chain that prides itself on customer service they succeed in that area. But the rest - not so much.
