Convenience was that it is close to the airport. But bare minimum breakfast and not replenished. But very costly for what was offered. Small kitchenette but no utensils. Sofa bed in not working condition.

Our sofa beds are brand new so I assure you they are working, our front desk staff could have directed you in how to operate it. Also, we have utensils of all kinds for the kitchen at the front desk upon request.

Our room was in the annex. Basically a run down apartment building. I don't know how the rooms in the main building are but I would not accept a room in the annex.

The annex was a block away from the main property. It was a third floor room with no elevator. The air conditioning did not work. The room had been straightened but not cleaned (trash in cans, old room keys lying around, etc.). Wifi did not work; staff kept telling us it was something we did. Only positive was that the room was large.
