This is simply not a business hotel and not set up for guests to work in their rooms (few outlets, poor lighting, un-ergonomic chairs).
The room I was given is in poor condition, the bed frame rattles terribly-- any small motion sets it off -- and the mattress is the worst I’ve slept on since college (a long, long time ago). A saggy, clammy puff-top. And you couldn't find the linens at Target, because they wouldn't stoop to selling this quality. The air conditioning is erratic as well. Worst night's sleep I've had since I had malaria in Guinea Bissau in 1992.
I travel, primarily for business, about 150 nights per year. Reading the positive reviews, it seems like those folks are staying somewhere else or, in some cases, they must have been too inebriated from celebrating on the Riverwalk to notice their surroundings. I can't fathom why, except for the dramatic decor and friendly staff, this hotel gets any positive feedback at all.
