This hotel could do with a Reno... tired and shabby. Absolutely no atmosphere in lower bar , billfold falling apart, room not cleaned properly.. no soap. Strange smell upon entering room. Once into main bedroom area it seemed to dissipate but was ever present upon entering. Only good thing was the view. Will not recommend.
