We stayed 3 nights in mid-April during which we tried our best to ignore the filthiness of our room. The floor looked as if it had not been vacuumed in weeks and the walls had remnants of spilled beverages stuck to them. Really, it is a shame because we would have been quite happy here had the room been clean.
We arrived quite a while before check-in time and asked to leave our luggage. The woman on duty was quite nice and allowed us to do that. While we waited, we stopped in Rookies. When the woman from the hotel saw us sitting outside the coffee shop, she informed us that our room was ready. We were quite surprised and pleased that it was ready so soon. When we were properly checked in, she impressively heaved our two suitcases up the narrow staircase to the second floor. I'm not sure that the cleaning staff was completely done in our room since I found the floor squeegee left in the bathroom, but at that point, we were really happy for a quiet, private place to pull ourselves together. If the cleaning staff was interrupted before they had finished, they never completed the job while we were there. They did, however, leave fresh towels for us each morning, so they should have noticed that at least the floor was in need of a sweep. The filthiness ruined what was a fine stay otherwise. The location was great--- close to the art museums and numerous eateries; it was the smoke friendly establishment which we were wanting and the staff was friendly. We did not complain of the lack of cleanliness while we were there. We probably should have instead of just bearing with it. We just kept saying to each other, "If only our room weren't so filthy!"
