The staff was okay and the food was edible, not much more than that. I went down to breakfast an hour before my meeting and was late for the meeting, that's how long it took to get seated. My room was sort of clean, but the floor looked like it could be vacuumed more thouroughly. There was a bug on my pillow, the kind of which I had never seen. I flipped up the mattress to look for bed bugs but there was no sign of them, just hair (which disgusted me). It turns out the the bug I saw was a juvenile bed bug. When I got home and found this information out I called the Viscount and the woman I reported it to didn't seem at all surprised. I realize that they need business and that if a bed bug outbreak in the hotel was public knowledge their business would drop drastically. However; I don't appreciate the fact at all that I wasn't warned and didn't take precautions to make sure that I didn't bring the infestation home with me.
