WARNING! Do not be fooled and do not stay here. This place is a joke. For what you pay $$ it is a bad dream. It might look good from the outside, but there is something bound to go wrong. Where do I start?
Upon checking in, I asked Paola the receptionist where is the best place to be dropped off by a taxi. I slightly hit my head against the glass window when she was pointing to the location. No big deal, until she laughed!! Yes, funny with your friend, but not a hotel receptionist, who should be professional and say, "sorry are you ok?" or whatever. But laugh at a guest about to check in who just bumped his head? No that's wrong.
This was a sign of the unprofessional and immature way this hotel is run. It might look cool, but its handled no better than a Holiday Inn.
The first room they took me to, had walls that were so dirty and marked it was pathetic. For what you pay at this hotel, they should not think any guest would stay in a room that had black scuff marks and scratches all along it. It looked like kids had skateboarded up those walls. Confirms their lack to detail or care.
The rooms have large windows. Anyone can look into your room. Unless you cave yourself in and shut the blinds. The windows being as they are do not open. You get no ventilation at all. Besides there are no nice views. Ugly.
The hotel is not near the center of town. You must cross a busy street to get anywhere.
The hotel is next to a convention center and a shopping mall. Boring. Any event at the convention center you will hear in your room. After that event is over, expect the rock band playing at the bar downstairs to rock you out all night.
The Cable did not work. I thought I could kill all the noise I heard with some TV. But no luck. What did break up the noise were the people walking upstairs. The floors are tiled (dirty tile) and you can hear the neighbors walk upstairs.
The floors.. are they meant to look old and never washed or is it "design cool"? Either way its disgusting looking. You can't look much less step on the tile floors.
The best thing about the hotel is the free internet..... I was able to book another room tonight for half the price. With all the modern amenities. My 3 night stay, will become 1, as I gladly check out in the morning.
I am so sad to not have liked this hotel, as I really wanted to and tried, that I write this review the night before I get out of this joke of a hotel. It's the ultimate pig with lipstick.
Again, do not stay here. The receptionist laughed and thought it was funny when I bumped my head... or maybe she knew the place she worked at was a joke!
