Tired Hotel in Need of Uplift

Cons: see above -- close down for 6 months and renovate; you can keep the old charm effect but need to modernize.
A very tired hotel. Lighting in the rooms is very poor, the bathrooms are small, the fixtures old fashioned. There is nothing fresh or glistening. It's pretend old charm that has lost its pizzaz. Was not that way when it was the Ritz Carlton years ago. Lack of attention to detail: every single soda in the minibar had an expiration date that had passed months ago!
