          The price paid for our stay was average compared to the quality of the hotel room. The bathroom was not clean and housekeeping didn't replenish supplies when cleaning. Not sure we will stay there again given the other options in that area.

          To hotel staff - due to a medical condition, the individual I would be traveling with prefers the elongated toilet seats. Do your rooms feature these or do you just have the older style round ones. Thanks for your help.
