Stayed in room 299 with panoramic view of the city and side of the mountain. The view is nice, but there wasn't enough curtains to cover the windows which meant as soon as the sun came up, it was right in our faces. Ice machines are still not working as mentioned in other reviews. The Wifi barely works. I found connecting to another hotel down the street works better. The carpet was stained. The layout of the room was odd and terrible. Mold was growing inside one of the picture frames on the wall. The whirlpool tub was in the corner by a window that you couldn't cover completely which meant less privacy. Water pressure in the shower was low and dripped for hours after you cut the water off. I could hear other people in the hotel while in the bathroom. We had to put a towel down in front of the door to the room to keep cold air out and the heat in. There were several dead flies lying around the room, we added to at least two to the death count. Also had a ladybug in the room. Traffic on the main street below was noisy but was mostly drowned out by the sound of the heating.
On the bright side, its located toward one side of the city with a short walk to all the great attractions. We were never disturbed by hotel staff once we put the do not disturb sign up. The cleaning staff hung extra towels, soap, coffee, cups, etc in a bag on the door knob. The whirlpool tub was quite relaxing after a long day of sight seeing. Very inexpensive.
