I'd read such nice things about Hotel Teatro, and I was looking forward to my one-night stay in a non-chain hotel so close to everything in Downtown Denver. Turns out the location is about the only thing this place has going for it.
When I arrived, I walked into the lobby to find the hotel restaurant was going through some major renovations, which meant there was no lobby to speak of (and no bar/restaurant). The check-in staff (and they were very nice) was seated at covered card tables with old manual credit card swipers. No big deal, renovations happen.
My room was tiny, smaller than most of the places I've stayed in Manhattan, but it was clean and well appointed and I had no real complaints. Until the next morning. I woke up to get ready for a long day of meetings only to find that the shower head didn't work, and the bath didn't drain. So not only did I have to take a nasty bath, but I had to take a cold nasty bath since the water had been running before I realized it wasn't draining at all. Then, the hair dryer didn't work right (it had only "on" and "unplugged" speeds). Then when I went to check out, I explained the situation to the employee at the "desk" and she said, "Oh. Sorry. But was everything else good?" There was no offer to right things, no credit, not even a real apology. When my colleague checked out, they didn't ask him for his key, for which he'll be charged $35.
This place was a complete disappointment.
