Everytime I stay in this hotel, my friends wonder why I continue to do so. The hotel exterior is impressive, but that's about it. The rooms are past their former glory and badly need a makeover. If not for messy bessy mosquitoe repellant, I wouldn't survive the stay. I don't understand why year in and year out, they can't seem to care about the mosquitoes getting in the rooms. The baths often clog up and my toilet has backed up on one occasion. Their food server in the morning is too strict about the meals. I am vegetarian and he won't swap hash browns for the meat I forego simply because they already give me extra mushrooms with my rice. It's such a waste if no one bothers to fix this hotel up. Such a beautiful building and area it is in.
