Some mold in the shower stall, very slow shower/bathtub drain, coffee maker did not work, mirrored door next to bath unit difficult to open and lastly repairmen to do better job with finishing touches of tasks.

price was the biggest difference from last year - over double. The elevators were shaky. There was a scheduled overnight plumbing repair that was not on the Travelocity site. Minimal distruption but would have been nice to know beforehand. I've never used the amenities as I have only been there for single night stays so I cannot comment on them. The rooms are nice and comfortable and staff seems very nice.
