4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

loved the decor, the hotel room was clean and pretty, staff were firendly and welcoming. However: the lobby is still under construction -- i had not expected that.Measures were taken to ensure minimal disruption. I found the lack of conditioner/body cream in the room surprising, i was not prepared for this. Also no bottled water in the room, and no readily visible machines to purchase a drink. I would have appreciated a full length mirror in the room. The bedside lights are very attractive, however, the light switches are too far to reach from the bed - moving them closer to the bed, or a remote control might be useful. Also, the covers for the electrical outlets were screwed in very crooked!
