(AP) The IOC says the family and friends of Olympic athletes have been unaffected by unfinished hotel rooms in the mountains near Sochi.


Olympics Games executive director Gilbert Felli says "we are not yet discover(ing) any problems from families."


The IOC sent Felli to Krasnaya Polyana after Sochi Olympic organizers acknowledged three hotels for accredited media were not fully operational.


Felli says several hundred rooms were not finished, not cleaned or were missing telephones and televisions.


But he adds "it does not mean that it's a catastrophe, that people do not have a room. People have not been put outside."


Families of athletes are arriving ahead of qualifying events starting Thursday.


Felli says rooms affected "will all be delivered" by the end of Wednesday.
