From January

History: Since the early 2000s, the hotel has  received inspection ratings of good and excellent. This was its first failed inspection.

What the inspector saw: On a follow-up to a previous needs-improvement inspection, the inspector found that the location still had not obtained sanitizer test strips, resulting in the failed inspection. The other issue, a high-temperature dishwasher being without a proper thermometer, was resolved.

Follow-up: The hotel passed a follow-up inspection on Jan. 19.

Response: A message left for the manager was not returned by press time.
