Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort

Nice hotel but staff/service was awful
Somerset was in a great location and was convenient to access restaurants and sightseeing. Room was very comfortable. One of things that irked me during my stay was they wouldn't provide me an extra room key even though its 2 guests in the room. Mind you, the key they provide needs to be used for power and if one person has to go down to grab something the other person has to stay in the room with no lights and AC. Elevators are also need your room key to get in to the floor. I had to argue and fill out an additional form to get an extra key. Management should be cognizant about this as this was a major inconvenience to the guests.Normally, hotels provide with 2 keys if there are 2 guests. Phone in our room did not work and even after complaining no one came to check on it. Staff was not responsive to any of our needs. Room was comfortable and very spacious.
