great location; ambivalent staff

We had executive lounge access. Would have been nice for the staff to inform us of lounge particulars (it is on the 2nd floor by the way). Be sure to arrive well before the published meal/snack time endings. They rolled up breakfast 15 minutes early while we were there. The "business center" is well-hidden on the 1st floor at the end of the hallway (next to room 158; no signage. I discovered it after going back to the front desk). Nobody was there to give passwords to the locked computers. The gym is unstaffed until noon. It was unlocked, in the 2nd level basement, and had no water in the hot tubs. Room was clean but small, had a great view and the was newly renovated.

The ac doesn't cool enough

The hotel is nice they nickel and dime you for almost everything.The hotel is close to some of the attractions which are withing walking distance.They arrange for a private tour guy of the city plus any other local you may want to see.The weather was hot and the ac in our room was not cool enough at the lowest temp.We have some issues with the bill even thoug we complaint 48 hrs before it was not resolved until the last minutes before we were departing for the airport causing unescesary stress.
