My husband and I just returned from a week's stay. We knew ahead of time that the rooms would be small and minimalistic, just by reading the reviews. First, the pros - the cleaning staff were very accomodating, brought us up an iron and coffee maker almost immediately. The front desk was also very friendly. And now the cons: The linens and towels were more the color of gray than white, and some of the towels were starting to fray around the edges. One of the lights over the bed could only be turned off by unscrewing the light bulb with a face towel. However, the biggest complaints are about the bar service and outside area. On our first night (Saturday), we stood at the bar for over 5 minutes, and there were three bartenders. One of the male bartenders was too busy making free shots for someone sitting at the bar, then he joined some girls at a table on the other side. We were virtually ignored by the other bartender, so left and went somewhere else. The next night, the female bartender was more interested in eating candy and appeared to be inconvenienced in making a drink. Chris Milligan was the redeeming factor, however. The outside area is in desperate need of new cushions and solid cleaning. Quite gross. The other area hotels within walking distance offered so much more, from free newspapers, apples and coffee in their lobby. So sorry, will not be returning!
