The problem was the service and amenities. The staff smiled and nodded a lot, but had no idea what my English words meant. I ordered a vodka martini, up; and received a Martini and Rossi Vermouth on the rocks. When I sent it back it was a huge deal. The included internet, a must, did not work, even on the hotel's lobby sets. The bars and restaurants were supposed to be WiFi ready, they were not. Americans need ice and lots of it. Having to call room service is all right, but the tiny buckets were good for about two Coke Lites, then time for another call to room service.
I will say, I was impressed that my 0630 AM arrival on Saturday was no problem and a room was ready for me. And since my departure was at 0315 AM on the third day, Monday I was allowed to stay in my room until 1800 HRS on Sunday evening. Again, no problem.
I would stay there again. But, even though I used my room a long time, the rate was high considering the internet problem.
