i chose this hotel because it was close to the fashion district where i needed to do some research. the room given to me was noisy, the phone and the tv didn't work, and their technician couldn't fix them. the red light message on the phone was alight during my whole stay. the internet connection was lousy and was cut even if you stay at their internet floor lounge.
the worst part was they charged my credit card twice. when i called them up to ask why, they said i was smoking in my room and they have pictures of me smoking in the room to prove it! do they have spy cameras in the rooms? btw, i'm a non-smoker! this hotel should be investigated.
it was only after many phone calls and emails that they agreed to credit back the $250.00 they overcharged. but i lost money because of the exchange rate and they wouldn't compensate. i've been asking for the last two weeks that the amount plus all the phone expenses (not to mention my time!) be credited to my credit card because i should not have been charged in the first place. they insist i should talk with my credit card company to get back the loss. so i should spend more time writing emails and making telephone calls to recoup $25.00 because of their fraudaulent act? i've not heard from them despite following up.
therefore, i'm warning anyone who intends to stay in this hotel: watch out and check your bill during check out and when you get your credit card bill. you could be the next victim.
