We really loved our stay, but my only issues were the following: no wifi in our room (19th floor); not enough bedding (so had to turn heat up but could have used more pillows); noisy under 20up bar and no shampoo/ conditioner but liked the cute emergency bag. Also, treadmill out of order. But overall LOVED all the important things about the hotel and will definitely return.
Air conditioning very noisy and impossible to stop. Otherwise everything is perfect.
Thank you for the quality of this stay.
