Stayed 2 nights in January 2014
Poor management. Rolling blackouts not monitored
Very disappointed with the actual hotel verses the pictures. This hotel should not be classified as 3 star. Perhaps 1 star at best. Washroom needs work to ensure condition is sanitary. Dirty floors and insufficient heat when back up generator in on. While the staff remain helpless the manager did not seem concerned with the issues. This was not a good experience and I was very fortunate that I only reserved this hotel for 2 days. I initially booked for 3 weeks and changed to 2 days just to make sure. I am so glad I cancelled
