Perhaps I expected too much, but when one pays close to $300 per night it should have been better. 1) The exhaust fan in the bathroom was very noisy and there was no way to turn it off without the light also being off. 2) Bathroom had an foul odor 3) Room had no a/c so the only way to get fresh air was to open the door or window which posed a privacy/security issue. 4) remote control for the TV required an electrical engineering degree to operate. 5) ditto the coffee maker 6) Lighting in the room was poor, so it was difficult to read in the room. My wife and I had planned to stay 2 nights, we left after the first night. The hotel did offer to change our room, but we declined.
