The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were some common complaints about some of the hotel's staff being on strike and the rooms.

Some reviewers complained about some of the hotel's staff being on strike. They reported delays entering and exiting the hotel, as well as limited pool hours due to the strike. One patron remarked, "I was shocked to get to hotel and find that I had to cross a picket line because of strike that was going on. I had to wait 10 minutes every time I wanted to entered or leave the hotel park lot". The strike was still going as of March 2014, as noted above, and guests should contact the hotel directly to discuss the situation for the dates of their stay.

Although the majority of guests were satisfied with their clean and spacious rooms, a few travellers were disappointed with their lodgings. They reported dated decor, worn bathrooms, uncomfortable beds and noise transfer from guests in the hallways.
