Mixed Reviews on Organization Skills
If you're part of a transaction with this locale, please save your printed receipt. Plenty of confusion might be avoided that way. Additionally, some felt the event planners were inferior, disinterested, and would not recommend their services. Others raved about how perfectly their events were arranged. It appears some staff aren't great with details and need some consistent follow-up from others to ensure completion of tasks.
Noisy and Smelly
Some rooms had a strange smell to guests with sensitive sniffers. Others couldn't sleep due to thin walls and nearby fire station sirens.
Some reported extremely weak Wi-Fi connectivity (basically non-existent) as well as significant difficulty logging in.
