I had issues right after my arrival, I spoke to the reception, and they asked me to send an email to the manager, I sent it 3 times, no reply!
Here's the text of the email sent to the manager, that explains everything.
My name is Patrizio Baldereschi, and I booked the hotel on Rivington for 12 nights.
I arrived last night as planned ( oct 26th ), I was tired, it was late, I had dinner and I went straight to bed.
Unfortunately ( for me) I woke up many times during the night, because of the noises, all night long.
At 5 am, I got up and it was raining inside the room, through the windows!!!!!!!! It kept for hours.
I went down to the lobby to tell them, and they offered me the room I’m in right now, 193.
The problem is, the wardrobe is half of the previews room, and since I have to stay here for another 11 nights, I can’t handle that.
I really hope you get me a better solution out of this.
Tomorrow morning I’ll have to leave for work at 9am, I really hope once I get back, there´s a better option.
Front desk staff had no idea. I was told I would have a high floor room, the showers have floor to ceiling windows and are easily seen from outside. This turned out to be false. Booked with a free daily cocktail deal, front desk said that was not possible. Waited 1.5 hours, had to call twice, for a working hair dryer. Finally had to take a $20- cab to a blow out bar and pay $100- to have my hair dried. Missed a meeting as a result.
