Another video showing more of our view from the room and pictures of what was found under the bed. Also included are photos from our previous stay.
Here are some pictures from our previous stay on May 6 2011. This shows the damaged elevator wood panels, older television and what our room looked like during that visit. As I mentioned the panels and televisions have both seen upgrades.
Unfortunately when we were getting ready to check out this is what was found under the bed. None of this trash came from our stay. You see this very often in motels / hotels – no one every checks under the bed, mattress or in / under the furniture cushions.
Part of the problem may be the time constraints put on the maids to clean a certain number of rooms within a specific time frame. Many motels / hotels are now forcing guest to check out at 11AM do to this. Definitely a big negative happening within the industry.
This is another video that shows our view from the room. You can see the competition and surrounding restaurants. On the left you will see the 30 story downtown Hilton and Illinois State Capital building.
