The room is nice and big. The staff was helpful when I went to the lobby to ask something because my wife had a little problem with her health and he helped me with what I asked of him

Parking lot was too small and some cars would block two spots or park sideways and noone was polocing the situation. I took multiple photos and showed it to staff and they looked at me as if i was crazy.

The AC did not work and when I called the front desk to ask if the AC had a special way of turning on or something, the lady said “it’s a hit or miss with the AC’s not working in each room so maybe you got a bad one.” Leaky shower faucet all night and since the AC didn’t work I had to open the window only to hear an arguement at 1 am in the parking lot.

When we arrived at check in, we were told the elevators weren’t working properly and would be worked on tomorrow Sat. The elevators apparently never got worked on because we had to walk up three flights of stairs the entire weekend. The room was hot and when tried to get the AC to work the “Verdant” didn’t work well. Once we final turned on the AC it didn’t turn off. We called for maintenance and no one ever showed up. The free breakfast was ok; bagels, waffles, fruit, cereal, and coffee.
