This room was nice however was not what I ordered. I ordered a Lakeview room and was not given one. There was the sound of leaking water coming from the ceiling in the middle of the night which broke my sleeping both nights. I made a complaint to the front desk staff which said they would check into the issue and get back to me and no one ever did. In fact there were no notes given to the next shift of employees.
