  • 2.0.Poor

    The room in the second floor (top of the lobby) is not too clean. Stains on the carpet. The room is old compared to some in the other wing. My door was knocked by 2 different cleaners / staff around 8am to ask for room cleaning twice. 10am is the check out time. Why they come so early and no coordination between the team. Some sounds generated due to the old plumbing.
