The elevators were so slow that my elderly aunt - who uses a cane to get around - decided it was in her best interest to take the stairs. I found a flea in our room and lip smudges on a glass, but decided not to report it since we were leaving within 24 hours.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our property. Your feedback is important to us and we apologize for not exceeding your expectations during your stay. We apologize that our elevators were slow, as both elevators are operational and rarely have wait times. We apologize for any small bug found in your room as they can often come in with guests or after housekeeping has left the room. We do hope that our team was able to replace any glass in the room upon request. Thank you for staying with us and we hope you will consider staying with us again.
