Liked: The open lounge area on the second floor was very nice. The breakfast was also not bad. Belgian Waffles would have been nice though.

Disliked: The computer lab was handy, but I hated having to pump it with money every ten nimutes or so. Mostly though, where do you put dirtied towels? I was on the lookout for a bin in the bathroom or something. Didn't want that back in my room again...
