The "suites" are a block and a half away, on a shady side street, with homeless people taking residence in the outside stairways. The outside smells like urine, the rooms have outside access (and doors that are pretty much see-through except for the broken blinds), and there is no locking gate on the street entrance. The floor was dirty (left the bottoms of my feet black just from walking), the bathroom was old, the cheap IKEA furniture was beaten up, the TV was at least 20 years old, there was no internet access (not even any to pay for), there were hairs on my towel, the air conditioner sounded like a plane taking off, you can hear everything going on outside, the kitchen is outdated and dirty and comes with no utensils or cookware... I could go on and on about how awful these rooms are. It's pretty much like staying in a crack den. I had to switch to a room at the actual Richmond Hotel because I felt unsafe. It's ridiculous how nice the Richmond Hotel is compared to their "studios" property. Ridiculous.
