Worst hotel ever

by Gorillakitty

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. They gave me a room 3 feet from the elevator. A room like this should not even exist but if it has to, then it should be given to someone who books at that minute or with some crazy discount; i booked 6 months in advance and paid full price. So, every morning we are dealing with loud people in and out but worse is that the service elevator is also right there with the staff slamming the door every 5 minutes from 6 in the morning and on. If I sound a little cranky writing this it’s due to the lack of sleep I’ve had the last 4 days. The staff is not rude but stand offish. The dinner menu ends at 10pm. I called for room service at 10:02 and they wouldn’t let me order potatoes because if was after 10. Not even a, “let me check with the kitchen”; just an F-u. They charge prices like they are a high end hotel but don’t have the attention to detail. My room was pretty spacious but there was only one trash can. There were 2 desks but one chair. Most reservations have 2 people, so what happens when you order room service; one person has To eat standing over the sink? They don’t t even 3 towels in the room, standard is 4. One roll of toilet paper. When we got the room serviced they didn’t replenish the water. There is one tiny towel bar in the bathroom but plenty of wall space. where are you supposed to hang your towel? I tried to get a late checkout, and you would think they could accommodate this given they stuck me next to the elevator but all they could give me 1130 which is the normal checkout time anyway. When i offered to pay they told me it was $100 and could not guarantee it. For these prices you are better off going to the Four Seasons where it’s consistent.

Nice, but not impressive.

Nice, but nothing to get too excited about. Rooms are small. Valet were rude on check out. We couldn’t find a seat anywhere to eat or sit in the bar or empty restaurant at 6pm bc everything was reserved and we were sent to another restaurant across the street. I don’t need to return and you wouldn’t be missing out if you didn’t visit either.
