When we checked in we found our room did not have air conditioning, just a control for a fan - off or on. So we had to accept what they gave us and could not cool the room properly for sleeping. That and the over-the-hill room were not what we expected for the price we paid. When we received our credit card statement we found we had been charge $13 for transfer of our charges to Turkey, a matter never mentioned at the desk or on the confirmation. A letter to the Helmsley Hotels asking for a refund went unanswered.
