Check in was fine. Decor was updated. Room had no heat on when I arrived. 20 degrees outside and 25 degrees in the room. It took nearly 30 minutes to get warm enough to take off my coat, much less shower and desire to climb into a freezing cold bed. I slept in socks and a sweatshirt until I woke up sweating because there is no thermostat. The wifi didn't work; big issue for biz traveller. Used the LAN connection and it was so slow I still could barely get any work done. I gave up and went to bed. Imagine my surprise- the pillows are the size of tic tacs. Literally they were these little square things slightly bigger than sofa throw pillows. With no real sized pillow anywhere in the room I true to arrange them to make up a real pillow but it definitely isn't the same.
Overall it was a very poor experience particularly for a decent chain hotel brand.
