Put into an out of order room when checked in at 1am. changed rooms and the t.v. didn't work on all stations. The coffee facilities not replenished , the lift not working 2 days out of the 4 days and 5 nights stayed. Offered a $100 credit in F & B. used $70 of but only the debit on the bill. Offered 50% on the out of order room, again not on the bill, so not worth the paper it was written on. The laundry on the top floor the soap and change on the bottom floor and only one washing machine for the whole hotel.....
