Clean room. Furniture dated. Bed good. Toilet seat swivels. Room 125.bathroom door latch needs repair. Sink faucet difficult to get cold water, makes huge vibration noise. Breakfast minimal, cold cereal, fruit,toast,bagels,juice. Coffee mediocre. Suggest that management take down sign in breakfast room that says to not take food to room in order to combat "insects".
