Despite prior bad reviews, and response from the hotel that they would do better, it doesn't look like much has changed. When we arrived, we waited more than 10 minutes for someone to show up at the front desk. The entire main floor reeked of chlorine from the indoor pool. Then it got worse. The elevator smelled like someone had dropped an entire bottle of PineSol, and our room on the 5th floor smelled like an awful combination of chlorine and PineSol. We walked around the different floors, and the smell was everywhere - there was no escape, and by the 3rd day, we woke up with headaches and raw throats. When we got home, the smell came with us because it permeated our packed clothing.
Maid service was also terrible. We made the mistake of leaving a nice tip each morning, as many experts now recommend. Unfortunately, she took the money, but never properly cleaned our room. We had to clean out the coffee pot ourselves each morning, and sweep up the hair on the floor in the bathroom. The bed was made, but the floor was never vacuumed. [Not much different with the dirty carpet by the elevator] We finally decided not to leave any tip the last morning. While the bed was comfortable, the smells were so intrusive that we had trouble sleeping.
