Smell the lobby-never eat Chinese food again
I don't know what the rooms look like. Despite having a reservation, there was no room available. The lobby smelled like old Chinese food, so I guess I wasn't too disappointed about the room situation, but the manager just kept cursing for allowing us to make a reservation. THEN, never returned my money for a reservation made on their site. We literally got thrown out by the management and told me to suck it...NICE all around.
