The thermostat kept reverting to 67F and refused to heat the room above 73 (which didn't feel like 73)
The bedding is sparse, no quilt, just a thick blanket which isn't up to the task on a cold night (or where the thermostat refuses to heat the room)
I was initially placed into a room on the main road, which is noisy well into the night and early next morning. I raised the issue with the front desk and they were able to quickly move me to a 2 room suite overlooking the parking (and nightly fireworks show!)
Only one elevator worked when I arrived and I saw that the maintenance man was out twice in the week to fix it. I don't think this is helped when 15+ people try to cram in instead of waiting as happened to me when a group of asian teens were making their way downstairs.
The staff were very helpful - it wasn't possible to get a drink one evening as the shop had closed and the game room (where the vending is) stops opening at night by key card, so they opened up the breakfast area and let me at the fountain machine.
I took one point off for the noise/crowding - the windows seem very poorly insulated
and one off for the cold - the HVAC system is also poorly insulated, cold air blows into the room through the vents when it's off, so if it's cold out as it was while I was there, then the room will be too.
My memory of this stay involved being cold and getting little sleep.
