Guests were locked out of the room and had to sleep in the lobby. They gave us a king room instead of a double room. They did not let us check in early even though we requested early check in multiple times.

The room and breakfast were wonderful for the TravelZoo price. The convenience to the Convention Center, Reading Terminal Market and China Town can't be beat ! ! !

The rooms at 730 and 731's a/c and/or heater are messed up! While on heater, both room temperatures were set on 69 degrees. The temp automatically went higher than 71 degrees! Go figure! So we put the a/c on instead because it was real warm and very uncomfortable to sleep thru at that point. But it still didn't work as we wanted it. We kept waking up in the middle of the night to adjust the temp so we could be comfortable. Also, there were NO ventilation in both bathrooms. Other complaints for Room 731: - toilet seat kept moving all over the place! - shower was clogged! Other complaint for Room 730: - only 1 towel in the room!

I wish there were adult only swim times. The night I was there, there were little girls literally jumping from the pool to the hot tub.
