Wait until the renovations are complete
Room looked onto a building site - work started at 8am sharp every morning with a huge amount of noise. One morning movement on the building site started at 6.40am. My windowsill was flaky and filthy. The net curtains were definitely in need of a wash. The loo seat was loose and sliding around when you sat on it (quickly changed well done) One day a sheet of paper was left by housekeeping saying please stay in your room tonight from 10.45pm to 5am for cleaning of the carpets! The one lift was very slow because the builders on floors 2 and 1 kept using it. What a mess you could see when the lift doors opened on floor 1 in error.
