In January 2014 I reserved a "luxury suite" for 2 friends. This was to be a room with 2 beds, kitchen, laundry facility in room, just a big room for $179 a night. We checked in around 2-2:30p.m. and was told the room wasn't ready, that was okay. Then in the next breath they tell me that they changed rooms on us. We were getting a handicap room.
She took us down to look at it and there was only 1 bed in the bedroom and one of us, me, had to use the sofa bed. Not the best sleeping on those. She offered me a folding bed which isn't much better. Then she said I could put the folding bed mattress on the hideaway bed. That turned out to help some. It was just a pain to set up each night. I had no dresser, night table or closet space. She also said we would have a much bigger bathroom with tub. I wasn't planning to dance in there!
When I went back to the front desk I mentioned that I was paying $179 for 2 beds and since this had only 1, why isn't the price lower. Well, she told me she would work a special price for me, $139! When I went on line I found out that is the original price for that room anyway.
This room had an outside entrance near the parking lot which was convenient since we had lots of camera equipment to haul in and out each day. It wasn't fancy but it was clean. They washed up a couple of our plates and utensils twice but didn't refresh our coffee supply. Towels were replaced.
The morning I left was too early for their shuttle so I arranged for a cab from Yellow Taxi to pick me up at 4:30a.m. I came back to the office at 4:20 with my last suitcase just as he was pulling out. The girl at the desk called them and the dispatcher was rude saying they come 15 minutes early, no one told me, She proceeded to say how he left at 4:20 and should have waited till 4:30. She then called another taxi company and he was there in 12 minutes.
The room was quiet even though we were along side the Douglas Bridge.
