Don’t even bother
We got in late, asked for a late checkout, they charged us for it, which most places do not do. Then housekeeping proceeded to bang on the door at 10am while the do not disturb sign was on the door. They even tried to open the door and hurried off when they couldn’t get past the latch. We ended up spending an additional $100 dollars to stay until 3pm. Each housekeeper on our floor was approached over the incident to see what the problem was and each had no idea what we were talking about. I don’t even know what the urgency was about because the room wasn’t even that clean to begin with. Ultimately it was a really bad stay. I would not reccomend staying there.
