The bed & pillows are to soft for a good sleep- I requested a firm pillow on the first night but still had not received this when I checked out 2 days later. The complimentary soap etc were not replaced on the second day. The bathroom floor flooded after a shower & became slippery I requested a movie which was put on an hour or more after the request The outside noise was disturbing with people running in room/ corridor above I had constant ph calls prior to my arrival wanting to know my exact arrival time
