Don't bother making any 'special' requests when you get there, the staff is completely indifferent to them. I booked my room in January. After reading the recommendations about avoiding the 2nd floor, I asked upon arrival (when I learned this is exactly where they were putting me!) for a different room on a different floor. Nope. Nada. Nil.
Front desk informed me that the rooms had already been assigned and there would be NO changes. Really? So, the friends I was traveling with who booked their rooms less than a week before our trip had the same, or in one case, better rooms than I, who booked mine 2 months ago? Hmmmm was it coincidence that the room I ended up getting had a view of the rear loading dock of the Von's grocery store...i think not! I am giving them a three only because the room was clean and comfortable...I will not stay here again.
