Room was like a jail cell. No window. Interrogation lighting. Charged me for a dongle even after returning it. Loud party music from nearby nightclubs

Setup on Dixon continues its decline. Only one of the three lifts in the building actually works. Minimal repairs visible in room.

    The room was nice but had no window. Bathrooms need more frequent cleaning; and shower space was tiny. Location excellent and room very quiet.
