Beds are as comfortable as others have said. Realize the renovations are ongoing - so bathrooms and other things will be gotten to over time. Lack of a bedside light between double beds is a pain...hopefully that fix is also coming up in the future. HVAC unit in the wall can be noisy - but then what wall mounted units aren't?
My biggest gripe is the smell of smoke. The whole lobby/registration area smells strongly of smoke. So strongly that I simply could not go in there. It really detracts from the otherwise good ambience of the place.
