Negative Reviews

Sub-Par Service

Though most guests were pleased with the service provided by the hotel staff, many thought the front desk was not very accommodating in various situations, sticking to hotel's rules and policies quite strictly. A couple guests also did not have their toiletries or coffee replenished after the daily cleaning.
