Arrived just before 2PM with a confirmed King Bed room
Told the room was not available and asked to sit in the lobby and "wait a few minutes"...
2 hours later had to wait in a long line to get my room and told that my Kind Room was still not ready but they had upgraded me to an Junior Suite.
Arrived to the room and not only was it not an upgrade --it was a queen room for handicapped patrons
Called down, put on hold 5 min, called back down, put on hold for 5 min
Finally went down and had to wait 20 min for assistance
given a new room --arrived (last room in hotel)
No remote for the TV--asked 3 people (employees)who told me to call down to the front desk
Remote delivered but it didn't work
Engineer returned 4 times before i got the TV working (30 min)
This place does not work and they don't care that it doesn't.
Avoid this place like POISON
