Had occasion to stay for a few days on business, and perhaps was assigned an older part of the hotel for that reason - we were part of a large conference and I am sure a very competitive rate was negotiated by the company for which I work. The setting is quite pretty, and the amenities plentiful, though I had little opportunity to take advantage of most of them. Food and drinks were reasonably good and the staff very pleasant and solicitous. My disappointment arose largely with my room, where the A/C was set at 69 degrees upon my arrival - a bit too cold for this Florida girl. I would simply have raised it up a few degrees, but found the thermostat either inoperable or unavailable for guests to adjust - but whatever the cause, bringing the room temperature up to a comfortable level wasn't something I could accomplish, so I just turned it off. Outside of my room was some sort of loading dock and for most of the evening and night I was treated to the sounds of constant large engines and back-up beepers as one truck after another came in to drop or pick up cargo, making a restful night's sleep a little challenging. The tub in the room was huge and looked inviting, but I never used it, both because it couldn't be stopped up (the plug was inoperable too), and I ended up being grateful for that because I also found myself taking cold showers, since no hot water seemed to reach my room. And I don't mean lukewarm or cool - I mean COLD water showers, to the point that upon attempting to shave my legs I cut myself because I was a mass of goosebumps and the razor caught one. All in all an unfortunately uncomfortable experience, and I would not wish to return, given an alternative choice.
