i spent a total of 3 nights with my parents.
there is a water cooler on the 3rd floor for all the guests to use. it was empty.
we had a family room on 3 different floors each night.
Drew at the front desk wasnt helpful at all. he didnt know how long local stores would be open till. what to do around town.
Charlie on the other hand was AWESOME! he had great advice on things to do. very helpful with giving tips on what;s worth the money etc.
the floors are quite awkward. there are too many steps so you cant take the bellcart for luggage cant go to the room. so you're effectively caring your luggage to your room.
on night 1 my room (on second floor) smelled but the hotel was sold out so we had to leave the windows open.
the 2nd room was on the 3rd floor had no smell. but the ac in the room didnt work and the bathtub wouldnt drain.
the final night we got room on the 4th floor. it was the best. everything worked.
in the past when i stayed here i had the BESt experience that's why i payed so much when i came with my parents. i was UTTERLY dissapointed. and what's worse my parents havent stopped lecturing me.
