2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
The customer service prior to visiting was top-notch. I was offered a room upgrade and complimentary early check-in. Upon arriving, there was not a staff member in sight. I had to figure out the hotel for myself, and found the room very confusing to navigate (there's a panel next to the bed that controls everything but this was not told to me, I had to figure it out myself). Some of the tech in the room did not work, and the hairdryer was very dirty. Hot water in the shower was also not that warm. Mask were not used by all guests at the property, and at one point there was a pool of vomit in the hallway at one point. No one explained the amenities of the hotel to me, and the tablets for check-in/check-out were very unresponsive. Overall, a disappointing stay given how great the customer service was prior to visiting.
