The beds are lumpy, scratchy sheets, pillows very poor. They need replaced. My daughter got rashes after one night of sleep. I would spend the extra money and stay somewhere nicer!

There is one small elevator so give yourself 5 minutes per trip to wait for it to come to get you to your destination. Breakfast is continental....the food was put out regularly and...
