The Morgan Hotel looks really great in photos. Cool, modern, and stylish, it’s got lots of contemporary furniture in a variety of fun shapes and sizes. Looking very much like a hip hair salon, the colourful lobby looks dressed for a party.
However, look past the trendy décor, and the place looks tired. The elevator, once we were behind the closed door, was grimy – the handprints on the white tufted leather being the least worrisome blemish. Our bedroom carpet had cigarette burns on the floor, and the pretty balcony had fresh looking butts on the table. Whoever had cleaned the room must have done so in a hurry. Neither the toilet paper nor the tissues had been replenished, and the shower door, which didn’t close properly, was dirty. We felt as though we were hot on the heels of someone else’s late night.
Regardless, we slept well. The bed was wonderful, and noise from the downstairs bar, which we’d expected, wasn’t a big deal. What was more disappointing was the staff, who shouted through the hallways on early weekend mornings. I don’t mind that it was a noisy party hotel, but I expected a bit more courtesy from the staff.
Like I said, the place looks great in pics. But the Morgan is sort of like a fancy party guest who has partied too late and too hard. Striking from a distance, but up close, simply average, and in need of a little freshening up.
