We walked into our room to find dirty surfaces throughout. There were two phones within the room and neither of them worked. We called downstairs to report a sink issue as well as the nonworking phones and found the desk person to be rude. The handyman came to fix the sink right away. He was polite and fixed it without a problem. The morning breakfast was wonderful and the attendant was super. The morning desk person was fantastic. The bed was comfortable and we were well rested. The hotel appeared to be under renovation so maybe when that is finished things will be top notch.

I had booked this room for a night before boarding the cruise. Unfortunately, it was far from relaxing. First, upon arrival, there was a long line at the front desk with only one front desk worker handling a line of 8-10 people. Phone was ringing like crazy. Get the room, surfaces were dirty, metal light fixtures had signs of rust, and there was a mildew smell as if the room had a lot of moisture. Third, the fire alarm went off multiple times through the night and early morning…good luck getting a restful night’s sleep. And finally, the morning breakfast was out of coffee. Had to wait a while for it to be refilled. I would avoid this hotel by all means.
