However, my room had an unfortunate air-conditioning glitch. So, I called up the front desk to report it and they sent a technician in my room in less than 10 minutes. If that wasn’t impressing enough, they even called me to apologize and check if the air-conditioning unit was working fine already. It was reassuring to know that the staff in general is professional and efficient.
