"We were in a basement type room, never have I ever had to stay in a basement hallway room. A bit odd I thought. Quite dirty carpets and very noisy at night, as our room was below the lobby and the automatic sliding doors into the lobby were very noisy you heard the swishing of the air every time it opened. It was just ok, I certainly would not make it my first choice if I had other options."
