    there is something fundamentally wrong at this hotel. reporting a problem achieves nothing. I eventually left 2 days early as I couldn't even get the drinks in my mini-bar refreshed after a week and calling 4 times.

    The parking is NOT free. Yes, you get a card to get in and out, but you still have to pay at the end of your stay. I believe it was somewhere between 21 and 25 dollars.
