The room was tidy and cleaned very nicely. The way to get to the hotel was a little tricky since there’s no large entrance where you can get on and off. The reception desk was nice and courteous but many of them seemed to be too busy to handle multiple tasks. When I checked out, I asked for a paper receipt but they said their printer was not working so they couldn’t do so. They told me to email my receipt and I never received one. My IHG points were never accumulated either. I don’t think I would want to pick this hotel for my next business trip.
