The omelette bar was the only good thing about our stay.
Other Comments
One of the pillows in the room had blood on it, the hallways were difficult to navigate (we could not find the hot tub as there was no signage in the halls) and the beds were very uncomfortable. Breakfast was also not very good.

Other Comments
They refused to honour my Travelzoo booking rate, the phone was broken, the low-flush toilet didn't really flush, impossible to get a parking spot the first night.
