I was extremely disappointed in this hotel. I thought that there were renovations made to the hotel a while ago, and that is one of the main incentives in my decision to stay here. However, the room was filthy carpet was coming off floor and the headboard was crumbling into pieces. The worst part was that the room was freezing cold. When asked maintenance to come and fix it, they stated that the are not able to heat the rooms because of the season still technically being summer. I thought this was absurd that a 4 star hotel can not at least be heated year-round regardless of the location. They did offer another blanket, but the blanket was also muggy and smelled. I doubt that I will stay here again-which is unfortunate because the staff was genuinely nice, however, the hotel really needs to update their rooms in the 21st century.
