Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Staff & service
We had specifically asked for an accessible room, and l personally called and spoke with the staff almost a month ago about that because my travel companion is a wheelchair user. When we arrived, we were told that the accessible rooms were occupied. At the end we were given a room that did not have an accessible shower. The toilet was accessible, but there was a standup shower WITH a glass partition that would make it impossible if my friend really needed to use the shower. We were very disappointed by this arrangement and were surprised how a nice hotel with good reputation would be so incompetent.
