Room was slightly dirty. A good vacuum over the carpet and lounge in our room may have changed that. We found an old piece of popcorn on the floor and some hairs on the couch / floor. I definitely think we would have felt more comfortable if the room was nicely vacuumed

Staff went the extra distance for a few needs we had. For a hotel with a small footprint, thry made sure we had the required privacy.
