Ryan, thank you for bringing all of this to our attention. We're so sorry to hear that this was your experience in our hotel and know that it can be frustrating to have an experience contrary to what you're expecting. We have investigated all of the items you have brought to our attention with this review and have corrected or are in the process of correcting each of them. We are sorry to hear that you found our management staff rude; we know that you were disappointed that we are a 100% smoke-free hotel and we do take that very seriously, but perhaps we were a little too rigid in relaying that information to you. We will be using this experience and your feedback in order to make improvements in our hotel moving forward and, again, thank you for bringing these issue to our attention.
