The room I booked on Expedia stayed balcony room. Was the ONLY reason we booked this hotel. When we arrived, we did not get a balcony room and they advised it was an error on Expedia part. I complained to customer support. On Expedia amd was advised it was indeed an error and the vote could not correct the error. I was offered a $25 credit, which did nothing to make up for the disappointing time we had when we we could have booked a different hotel WITH a balcony as expected. I was unable to cancel and couldn’t get a full credit either. EXTREMELY dissatisfied.

    Nice location, great amenities, But the hot water came and went while in the shower, and the balcony was kinda of a rip off. No tables, not enough chairs for everybodies room, and quite trashed.
