I loved this hotel, but not because it was any good. It was hilarious! The decor was straight out of the 1960s, and I suspect that was the last time it was refurbished.
We stayed here as part of a tour, and according to the guide it is getting much better since new management came in. We stayed a few months ago, so it could be better still now. The first room we were checked in to we couldn't stay in, because the bathroom door didn't close. It didn't close because it had no door knob.
The hotel uses the original key card system, which is actually a plastic card with holes in it which is supposed to match up with the holes in the door lock. These didn't work well when installed in the 1980's (I remember staying at a Sheraton as a kid which had this system and it wasn't good) so after decades of door openings it was woefully unreliable.
The restaurant again, was like stepping back in time. The staff were old fashioned in their approach, and the food was adequate if not fabulous. Nice fruit options.
Overall the hotel appears sad and in desperate need of some love and attention, and I hope they give it that, without taking away the kitsch of the current decor.
