Have you ever been on a bad blind date that really cost you? Before the date, you talked to some people (looked on line) and wanted to hope for the best? That’s what you have at the Hotel du Theater. You try your best to focus on the good stuff, but just can’t wait for the date (or in this case, a weekend getaway) to end. Parking is tough, tight, dirty and smelly - yes. Reception is a little dark and unwelcoming. The ‘sweet and musty’ smell of twine that surfaces half of the walls on the second floor is unescapable. Entering room 203 (a family room), it is nice to see the size, however the mismatched furnishings are immediately noticeable, as is the frayed cloth wallpaper and the uneven laminate wood flooring. My wife and I shake our heads at each other...so this is how the next couple of days are going to be...we’re committed now. Once we unpack a little, we consider going on line to check local restaurant reviews and ask the receptionist about wifi. “Sorry, there is no WiFi in your section of the hotel.” We decide to clean up a little before going out and find that the bathroom is especially small, the shower curtain is exceptionally long, and there is a full-length mirror along the back wall of the shower. One nice feature of European hotels is having the toilet in it’s own room and the shower and sink in another room - which is the case here. However, I have been in airplane WCs that are larger than the our toilet room here - about 6” square. Try shimmying out of your bloomers and sitting on the throne in a coffin. On the upside, the view from the room is pretty and the location of the hotel is great - with nice walking access to downtown, which is where we often chose to spend time rather than in our hotel room. Hotel du Theater limps in at 3-stars and has me vowing to myself to book nothing but 4-star hotels in the future.
