Clean & fresh looking. Didn't care for not having a coffee pot in the room. Needs a fan in the bathroom. Couldn't see through the shower mist.

Was not able to check in when I arrived, although I was early. Which then required me to check in after my event which meant 11 PM. Upon checking in, was told that they only had a room with a king size bed although I booked the room with two doubles and three guests. Then the elevators were out for the entirety of our stay. Not a good weekend.
