    How disruptive is the construction? We are scheduled to stay here 3 nights next month. We just received an email stating that our deposit is non refundable, and describing "extensive renovations" including the fact that the front entrance is closed? We phoned reception to request a room away from construction, but they were unhelpful. Suggestions,thoughts welcome
