    Great room but...

    The halls and elevators smelled really bad, like spoiled milk. The arrival disappointing doesn’t seem 5 stars. no sense of arrival. The staff is mostly pretty friendly and somehow trying to make up for the fact that the hotel seems a little more ok the low end side. However the room was perfect. Loved the sheets, loved the pillows. Very comfy! Loved the bathroom although the toothpaste on my dental kit was previously opened and used. Room service was fast and the waiter was very friendly and efficient.
