Lack of air conditioning leaves guests sweltering

Guests note the in-room air conditioning is not currently an amenity offered by this hotel. Those staying during the summer months really notice the lack of climate control in their units. Many say the hot and sticky conditions have an adverse impact on the quality of their sleep. Guests would like to see a better form of ventilation here.
