Very good 8.0
The need for heat
The check-in was very casual and the check-in clerk seemed to have limited interest in good service. Also, the first room I was allocated had no heat and it took 45 minutes to try to resolve this and then get a new room. Everything else was lovely - great room (eventually), great breakfast , great area
