This hotel received top reviews on TripAdvisor so we relied heavily on everyone's reviews and gave it a shot while we were on our 3 weeks tour. After a couple of nights here, we had to change hotels. It wasn't awful, it was just not what we were expecting with all the great reviews.
I guess the ratings and reviews here depend on your perspective of hotel rooms. If you are accustomed to Motel 6, Econo-Lodge, Travel Lodge, and the like, Whitman is the Ritz Carlton for you. If you are accustomed to Hilton, Marriott and Hyatt, then Whitman is a camping trip is the best way to describe it.
Weak internet, had to sit in office area to use internet, very dirty carpet, had to keep shoes on in room, and take them on and off for the bathroom, fly in the room had to use travel magazine to swat it while standing on chair, lack of extra towels at the front desk both nights we asked, mediocre bed and bedding, no refrigerator in room, mediocre breakfast, and dirty corners in room are some of the things we did not like. It just had a desolate and depressing atmosphere, but the employees were NY friendly, except the guy who I called in to confirm my reservation and room type with who hastily exclaimed, "Yea, you are in in a King!" and hung up the phone on me. That may have been the sign from above that this was not the right place for us, and I should have tried to cancel out.
Oh, and how can I forget this: the front desk employees that check you in the lobby sit behind bullet proof glass like a teller in a bank and you talk to them through the hole.
But again, it may be the right place for you depending on your disposition and what you are accustomed to?
