On the way to our room out of the elevator, we immediately smelled the aroma of rotting garbage. Our one bedroom room on the 26th floor was two doors away from the trash chute. If we did not keep our window open, the garbage smell would permeate the entire toom. The floors were not cleaned very well. There were hairs (not ours) in the entry tiled area as well as the edge of the carpets as soon as we got into the room. I'm not sure how good housekeeping is as those hairs were never cleaned and our bathroom mirror was never wiped down (same water spots everyday) during our entire stay. On one occasion the maid swept the tiled area with a broom and left whatever was collected right outside our door. The hotel must have a very good photograher since the pictures posted on their site are nicer than the actual room. Our room had one window air conditioner in the bedroom. There was a rubber hose connected to the A/C with it draining into a plastic bucket on the balcony. The view was very nice and the location was good however we will not be returning to this hotel because of the cleanliness issues.
