Thank you!

I would not stay there again

Pros: Close restaurants
We were in a smoking room, which is what we requested, but it was not very clean and stunk to high heaven. The curtains were yellow and it was obvious that they had not been washed in a very long time. Just because people smoke does not mean that they are dirty and that is what this room said the hotel owners believed. The website description says"Newly renovated, beautifully appointed guest rooms" - not so - this section of the hotel is old and very decrepit. When I relayed this to the desk clerk on check out I didn't get so much as an "I'm sorry!" Wont be staying there again!

The staff was friendly things were clean. The beds & pillows really nice. The carpenter in the in the hall 4 floor was stinky and dirty. The bed room carpet was scary.
