Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service
We are in our 70's and found our room was on the 3rd floor with no elevator. The exercise of going up and down the stairs was good for us,BUT, when we checked out we requested luggage pick up for 11:30AM and waited until 11:45 at which time we managed to carry our luggage down the spiral stair case, across the property and half way to the lobby before we picked up by someone with a electric cart. Very upset about the service when checking out.
