Under renovation
Hotels.com did not indicate the hotel was under renovation and many of the pictures were misleading and amenities not yet offered. There wasn’t a bar or a working elevator. It looks like it will be a nice hotel eventually, but we should’ve been offered a large discount for a hotel that is dusty with wires exposed

Under construction and no breakfast
When I made the reservation on hotels.com it said there Was continental breakfast . However there was no breakfast included at the hotel. They were undergoing reconstruction and it was very loud at night hard to Sleep. There were spiders in the room and the water would go on and then off . It was Not in great condition. Once the renovation is done I'm sure it'll be fine.

Under Construction but Comfortable Rooms
The hotel service was great but they are still under construction. So the hallways and things like that was a bit messy because of the work being done. The room itself was very clean. There isn’t a fridge or microwave in the room so that’s a little unfortunate but it wasn’t a big enough deal to me where I wouldn’t book a trip there again. (Once construction is finished of course.)
