2/10 Poor

As an architect I had interest on historic room
I was given a smaller room that what I paid for. I paid for the King bed, I was given the 2-full beds in the section of the hotel that were not the historic hotel rooms. I had interest on seeing the historic rooms ( floor 3 and below ) but even after insisting, I was given one of the recent build top floor rooms.
