I was at this hotel from Wednesday the 20th September until Sunday 24th September 2017 for a Viet Nam reunion. The room was not in very good shape, except for new carpet! In the bathroom the light looked as if it would fall any minute, the caulking was horendous and you could see that the tile was not very clean around the edges. After the first night we had to request a mattrass be relaced as it sank down in the middle. The ceiling/wall over the AC showed water damage probably from the unit in the floor above. Evidently the hotel is not set for breakfast when booked to capacity. Breakfast was in one of the conference rooms (not the restaurant) and the curcuit breakers kept shutting the lines off where the toaters and waffle machines were on plus the eggs, bacon and potatoes were cold. The last 2 mornings they were somewhat better. I was lucky and was able to speak to the General Manager who "kindly" charged me 1 night less. Also the conference room that we had for our "Hospitality suite" was freezing cold even after someone came and attempted to adjust the temperature. If this hotel had not been arranged for our reunion and prepaid months ago I would have moved out after the first night. I can only hope that we had "one of the few bad rooms"!
