"a very clean hotel"

"Staff was friendly, rooms were a great size, and very clean. wanted to use the pool but it was being filled so it was too cold, maybe they should drain the pool mid week so its good for Friday night guests.Also a good idea to bring your own ear phones as the elipticals & treadmills have their own t.v. attached to them."

"I believe I may have left a hair brush in my room. Aluminum frame with black brissles. Could you advise me if the item was noticed by the housekeeping staff and turned in. Thanks. The only annoying thing I noticed was that when the air conditioning unit cycled on and off, it was very noisy."
