Nice property, but bad chemical smell in rooms and lobby

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by a traveler from on September 2, 2009

very attractive exterior and lobby areas,however there was an overpowering chemical odor in the lobby which was even worse in our room. We had to request a room change to a higher floor immediately because of it.The smell was still present in our new room, but not as bad. The odor was from work being performed in an ajacent building, and was not the fault of the hotel,but it made our 4 night stay rather unpleasant.The front office staff seemed nonchalant , and was surprised that we requested a new room.Overall, it is a nice property with accomodating staff and lovely rooms.I would warn people with respiratory problems to avoid staying here while this work is being done.
