Hot as hell
Checked in to the hotel got to the room and the AC was on but low switched it to 65 but the room kept on getting hotter at 2 am the room was over 90 degrees, called the front desk to then find out that the room phone didn't work , went down to the front desk and they had a guy come up and gave me a fan . It only cooled the room to 85. I was unable to sleep

8/10 Very good

Lovely view, needs attention
I've stayed here many times and like the location. The wing I stayed in for this trip was reportedly recently renovated, though there did not appear to be any improvements. In the bathroom, it took a long time for hot water to come up, the tub failed to drain, and there was only one small towel bar for hand towels and no place to hang a bath towel. Whatever renovations took place did not address the bathroom.
