I was told there was something wrong with my credit card at time of check in. I called my bank only to find out it was the hotel's systems that disconnected, not my credit card. We got put on a floor that was being renovated. It stuck of paint and had noisy workers there from early in the morning. The hotel tried to get out of giving us our free breakfast even though I had a print out stating it was included.
