    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

    Tvs don’t work , as they are in flux with a provider. I had to call to get fresh towels and toilet paper ect.. They don’t inform you that you must request housekeeping . When we returned from a full day sightseeing we came back to our unkempt bed and no toilet paper. They add additional tax charges beyond Expedia charges, though Expedia quoted price “including taxes”. Not advertised pool is not open! No concierge available! No help for locating places in this city we’ve never been to before. I’d never stay here again! You’d think they’d comp something and I asked they wouldn’t.
