Hotel is undergoing ugly renovations out the front and on first floor pool area, stayed here 1 night on a business trip. Zero apologies or mention of the renovations taking place by any staff, generally unfriendly, unhelpful, not proactive staff who tend to group around and look at you but never assist in any way with bags or show a caring attitude.
I am not fussy but this was worth commenting on.
Was told hotel was fully booked, however, after 5 minutes given a room on the 1st floor directly in fron of new pool construction site with no comment by staff that they knew this room was poorly located. Headed down to reception, left bags in room, asked unfriendly robotic staff if I could upgrade happy to pay extra above $279 a night to move, waited 5 more minutes switched me to another room on 7th floor, much better. Why this room wasnt available earlier I have no idea? Pros, good location, comfy bed. Cons renovations, price, poor front desk staff, no pool, expensive breakfasts, tiny bathrooms need renovating.
