    Loosing its touch and value for money

    Compared to previous stays at the hotel I was very disappointed. The staff were not at the front door to take my bags out of the taxi. Asked at the desk to get a taxi but person was reluctant to get wet and used an app instead. Two people managed to get ahead of me. On previous stays they were very vigilant. The breakfast was cold. Had difficulty in getting some eggs fried. Wanted me to take eggs that were cooked at least an hour previous.

    A few hiccups but "not bad"

    I stayed in a recently renovated room, and it was clean and modern - although they went crazy with the light switches, and it took me a while to figure out how to toggle certain lights such as the night light (only possible from the right side of the right-most bed). I ended up asking to change rooms, because in the original room I was given, the AC did not function (the fan ran but air was not cooled) and the buttons for toggling the "do not disturb" and "please make up room" lights did not work either. The replacement room did not have these issues, though, and the staff were very accommodating. Room was nice and quiet. Would have been nice if the motorized drapes could have been stopped halfway open, rather than only "completely open" or "completely closed", but that's a nitpick. Probably would stay here again if I had business in the area.
