"The hotel was being renovated, and offered nothing but a place to sleep. Breakfast wasn't provided because of Covid; the only option was a food cart with mimosas and snacks. No ice in the ice machines. Limited snacks in the gift shop. Rooms aren't serviced unless you stay 3 nights or more. The lighting was poor, and there wasn't even a microwave.

No housekeeping, so I had to go to the front desk for towels, garbage bags, and other things.2022-09-25"

At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
