I'd been excited to stay in the Airsteams on the roof of the Grand Daddy Hotel since years ago when I stayed at Daddy Long Legs (art boutique sister hotel on Long street.) However, immediately upon arrival we were shown the John and Yoko airsteam which was so small that the bathroom was outside next to the bar. We were then given the choice between the Dorothy and the Goldilocks airstream which were larger, but both were in need of at least an update of the furnishings. We knew the airstreams were retro, so expected the built in pieces to be old. However, even the curtains and removable furniture like chairs and cushions were dingy and dirty. Once we decided on the Goldilocks, we realized the artwork for which the airstreams are known was peeling and poor quality. When there was not hot water for showers, we decided for the price of a luxury hotel room, we'd rather have a basic room (superior room) inside the hotel. That room was clean, big and comfortable, but nothing extraordinary for the price. If you are looking for a cool experience of a funky art hotel, stay at Daddy Long Legs down the street for half the cost, more space and friendlier staff!
