Holy cow -- where to begin? The much-touted free airport shuttle stops running at 11pm, after many flights arrive. We got there by cab just in time for our check-in to be handled (ineptly) by the evening girls. ("Is a double bed okay?" Why would a double be okay when we reserved and paid for a king?) The clock struck midnight and the evil stepsisters vanished, to be replaced by one unfortunate night clerk who had a dozen parties to check in and no help whatsoever. The phone rang continually, and he ignored it. He also tried to ignore me when I came back downstairs to obtain an internet access password that Frick and Frack had neglected to mention. Then we discovered there were no cups or glasses of any kind in the room. No point in trying to get Nightrider's attention, so I swiped a couple of plastic cups from the "banquet" room (like there has ever been a banquet in this dump). Cheap, dusty furniture -- laughable desk chair on the verge of collapse -- well, you get the idea. All this, ladies and germs, for a mere $150/night. At least internet access is free, if you can get the Employee of the Week to give you a password.
I'm sure this place survives solely on one-night pre- and post-cruise business -- because if it depended on any repeat business at all it wouldn't last a month.
There's a Springhill Suites across the street and a bunch of other hotels close by. Try one of those. None of them could possibly be any worse.
