Stayed at this hotel on 6/21 in room 1102. The lobby of the hotel was great, the rooms were nice and recently renovated for such an old establishment. The next morning I was looking around the room to be sure I didn't forget anything and found under the night stand an empty green bottle (that was not mine), and under the bed was a pile of dog feces (and I didn't have a dog with me). I called the front desk to alert them of the issue as we were leaving anyway. They offered not apology or shock that such a tragic thing would happen. Other than this the hotel was nice.
Also, I asked the front desk for Advil or some type of headache medicine (I even offered to pay). They were able to offer any (first time that has EVER happened, even a Holiday Inn would give you headache medicine upon request). You'd think a hotel as nice as this one could at least provide Advil.
