Good: room nicely appointed, Wi-fi and USB charging ports, coffee maker, microwave and fridge. Nice bedding. Decent selection of TV channels. No disinfectant odor.
Bad: Thought bedside lamp bulb burned out. After swapping bulbs and further investigation it turned out maid had forgotten to plug it back in after vacuuming. Don't need this inconvenience. Clock radio totally useless. Maid probably sees this every day and yet did nothing until I complained. Air conditioning apparatus in hallway outside my room rattling like crazy. Not too noticeable in my room but makes me think they don't care about maintenance.
Ugly: Breakfast! Hot food provided not bad if only it had been replenished. When I came down into the breakfast room most everything was cleaned out, especially the coffee. (I need coffee to get me started). Took about twenty minutes to have the problem remedied. Same thing happened the 2nd morning of my stay. Aargh!
Bottom line: Staff is way behind the curve, Not on top of things. Complaint-driven and not pro-active in providing an amenable experience. I don't like to be a complainer, it makes me feel bad to do it, but they gave me no choice. Not a happy stay for $111/night.
