The question is if three rounds of drinks with three people is equivalent to a nights stay in the hotel, what does that say about the hotel? $13 for a shot of average blended whiskey, $25 for a shot of a single malt is something I have an experienced yet. It is enough to drive anyone to drink, but you couldn't afford it here. Other postings have noted the scrimping on Internet, high price of minibar etc and that coupled with the tired look of the hotel should be sending alarm bells ringing with the management. It's not enough just to live off the Sheraton brand. There are number of other hotels in this great city, and I believe that they are building a Hilton on the seafront which should give this place a serious run for its money. Staff were very friendly, but I noted a bit of inconsistency in assigning rooms. The person next to me was given a choice of city view a River view and a choice of a queen or a king size bed. and I was not. My room consisted of two twin beds, which were quite small by modern hotel standards. I usually expect the hotel to highlight this to me. Maybe it was because I had a corporate rate, did not have breakfast included in the price of my room, that they gave me one of their lesser rooms. Again, what does that say about the management when staff assigned corporate clients this type of rooms? I will be looking elsewhere the next time I visit Montevideo.
