The room was lovely, and very clean. On the downside, it was at the front of the hotel near a 24 hr peteol station. That didn't bother me, but might bother some. Check in staff were excellent. Restaurant staff were not attentive and when I commented, was told they didn't want to bother me and were waiting for me to shout out. I had asked for a break between main and dessert to finish a glass of wine. But then had also tried to get their attention for about 10 min and couldn't get either waiter to make eye contact.
