While our room was pleasant enough, the bathroom was so small it was difficult to dry off after taking a shower. The hotel runs a shuttle within a 3-mile radius which is a nice feature but when we called, as instructed, to be picked up from the restaurant where we had dinner, the person on the phone was rude. When we called the hotel a second time to inquire about the shuttle, the answer was "Well, there's a lot going on so he (the driver) will probably be late." Well, he already was, which is why we called twice. In addition to our bill being slipped under our door we also got a piece of propaganda from the Faith & Freedom Coalition espousing ongoing efforts to elect conservative politicians. (Not amusing.) There is a fee to valet park as well. All in all, a disappointment.
