We thought this would be the hotel with best view of downtown due to its central location. It is located in the center of the town, what we did not know is the main road where the hotel located is completely
demolished due to major construction and closed for traffic. People are still able to walk the sideways and stores are open for business, but the view obviously does not look the one pictured in website. Construction vehicles and dust are everywhere and the construction itself has been ongoing since May 2007 when we arrived in August 2007.
It would be unfair to not let people know that hotel view and physical
condition does not look the same anymore from the picture but charging
the same rate as if everything is still the same. I guess we were still lucky since we stayed two nights during the weekends when the road work is off. We could not imagine how awful the noise and the dust could be when the road construction is at work !!! So, one more lesson to learn, CALL THE HOTEL FOR ANY CONSTRUCTION (EVEN ROAD CONSTRUCTION) BEFORE MAKING RESERVATION..!!
