Let me say that the valet staff and the front desk staff were super nice and try very hard to make it a good experience. However, the manager doesn't care and the room cleanliness level is terrible. We checked in and first found that the bedspread was dirty - like someone had stepped on it and possibly even bled on it. The front desk staff came and replaced it when we mentioned it, but wouldn't you think that it would have been all set up on arrival?
The room and hotel is old, but has so much potential if there were more care taken of it. Lighting is poor, carpet is old, furniture is antiquish but doesn't fit the room well.
My wife tried to make the best of it and decided to take a shower. The tub was in desperate need of a serious scrubbing. As soon as she started the water, the tub started filling up. The drain was so clogged it was as if the drain was closed. I unscrewed the drain cap and it was all plugged with hair and soap residue. I called the front desk and the front desk attendant herself came with a bottle of bathroom cleaner spray and CLR. She used the CLR to unplug the drain (weird choice). And whatever she did to clean the tub didn't make a dent.
The televisions are laughable. giant armoires with tvs that maybe have 19" screens at best.
Oh, and Wi-fi is so buggy that it's easier to just log on to the free wifi from the Jasmine Cafe next door.
So we chose to leave about an hour after checking in. When we reached the front desk, the manager was there and she didn't even say one word to us to either try to get us to stay or apologize for our dissatisfaction.
Again I must say that the hotel has so much potential. Someone could invest some money and energy and really make it an outstanding property. For now, I wouldn't recommend it.
