I have nothing against this hotel or its staff. It is a two-star hotel at a two star price. It was probably quite a nice hotel in the 1960's but very little seems to have been done to maintain it in at least a decade.
That being said, staying in this hotel almost ruined a romantic get-away for my girlfriend and I because we booked it through Hotwire. If Hotwire had listed the name of the hotel instead of representing it as a four-star hotel with a deep discount based on an inflated base rate, we would at least have known what we were getting for our money. Unfortunately, we thought we were getting a four star hotel and we got a two-star hotel. What’s even more disgusting is that Hotwire continued to do this weeks after our complaints should have brought it to their attention.
The staff were helpful and friendly, pointing out the best places to shop nearby and that the area was safe...but that we should be careful of the prostitutes who come out at night just one street below the hotel...and that we'd be ok "just don't touch." It was a cute conversation. :-)
