Filthy brown tapwater, no working light switches, and $7.00 for a bottle of water were just a few reasons why I can't recommend this hotel.
I quickly noticed that the clock in the room was off by more than an hour. Otherwise that could've been a problem for my evening dinner plans. Unfortunately, I didn't notice the alarm was set for midnight. That WAS a problem. But only one of several problems I encountered. The noise from the elevator made falling asleep challenging. There were no drinking glasses in the room, which was probably for the best given the brown, dirty water. I still couldn't bring myself to pay $7.00 for a bottle of water.
On the upside, I appreciated the complementary sewing and nail file kits in the room. The furnishings were upscale and looked nice, although the bed was not terribly comfortable. The front desk staff were tremendously friendly upon check-in and checkout. Overall, I can't recommend this hotel.
