Because of the nature of my job I am a frequent traveler and have about 30 different health stays a year at a minimum. And this has been one of the worse hotel stays I’ve had in years.
Let’s start with parking. There is no parking at the hotel so upon arriving the desk clerk told me that it was mandatory to valet at a rate of $35 per night.
The room experience gets even worse. I was given a room facing the street and Lincoln Rd which is a popular tourist destination. So between the traffic noise and the music coming from Lincoln Rd I couldn’t sleep and eventually had to go downstairs and request that they change me to a different room.
Both rooms are about 60 years old and feel like if you are sleeping in a box. The thermostat wasn’t working and it felt like if I was in an ice cube.
The only updated items are to the carpeting and furnishings. The bathrooms are about 3ft X 5ft. The bathtub was about 2X3 ft so forget about laying down for a relaxing bath. The door is right next to the toilet. So if sitting on the toilet and someone were to enter they would either rip off one of your toes or bang against your knees because the space is so cramped.
The bathroom in the second room was situated a little differently so you don’t have to worry about the door issue but it was equally as small.
I had an event starting at 7am about 2 minutes away from the hotel. My initial thought was to leave the hotel at about 6:30am so I would have plenty of time to get there. Fortunately I decided to leave a little before 6am. Why fortunately? Because it took them around 20 minutes to get my car.
I definitely will give this place two thumbs down.
