I have been at the hotel for a work-related event. I thought I was sliding out of my conference room chair because I was tired. But, by session 3, I realized, it was not me, it was the chair! I am petite, but even for me the seat cushion and back support are too narrow. The back support,especially, is teeny. There are no arm rests. The fabric is almost slippery. Since I will be spending the bulk of my time here in the conference rooms, this is significant.
As a regular guest, I find the mattress too soft and after 2 nights, I can already feel the impact of this on my back. There is no working ice machine on the 4th floor (there are random scuff marks and holes on the floor where the ice machine should be). My room is as far as a room can be from the elevator banks, and like most/all hotels these days, there are no stairs that a guest can take up to their room to save time and get a bit of exercise.
I think it would be easy enough for the hotel to use better chairs in conference rooms. If they had done so, this negative review would never have been posted.
I want to add that the 2 people at the front desk who I have asked for assistance with on local matters have been helpful.
