Handy for airport and shops

Hotel is spotlessly clean. Loved the small touches; the pull-down seat in the shower, the coffee plunger etc. Three things hampered my stay...the constant noise from trucks going by, all of the pillows were too high for me and I had a fitful sleep without any pillow, and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't prevent shower water from going all over the bathroom - leaving huge pools of water on the floor. Curtain seemed insufficient. But these could also be personal - traffic noise and pillows may not be a factor for someone else. Carol (in the office) is an absolute gem!! Goes out of her way to be helpful.
