Great location and excellent price but most of the staff couldn't have cared less.
When we checked in we noticed a strong odor - like baby powder. We assumed someone had gotten over zealous with air freshener and turned on air-handling system to clear out the smell. When we came back to room at around 6 pm it still smelled so we called to front desk. They said they were all booked up and to call housekeeping which we did. But no one responded by 10 pm. Next morning we called housekeeping again. They said they'd be up within 10 minutes. We waited half hour then went to breakfast. We requested new room and did get moved - to a room with a very loud air-handling system. Housekeeping did show up eventually - they were in the room when we came back from breakfast.
Rooms were clean but common areas were not. Good continental breakfast.
