We checked in to our 12th floor room. It smelled funny. Kind of like stale cigarettes combined with the back room of a funeral parlor. HMMMM? well, we requested another room. Another floor same smell. Sorry I love the El Co but my wife had a problem. Anyway was it because the room was fumigated? I don't know and the desk would not confirm or deny. Just a funny smell? GROSS! My wife will no longer stay there. Period. Heads Up ! all rantings are in my opinion only. No basis in fact exists. Draw your own conclusions.
