This was far from being the first time I stayed at this property but I was sheltered if you will because I only stayed on the business floor. Well this last time I was not as fortunate and had an opportunity to see the "rest of the hotel" and it wasn't pretty. As expected older properties have their problems but my main problem was how low rent and unclean it was. I was moved twice because the bathrooms were not cleaned properly. From urine on the bottom of the toilets to dirty tubs. As a business traveller details and cleanliness are paramount. Once I notice a problem my eyes are fixed for others. There were smudges and stains on virtually everything from the phone to the bed cover. Then there were the constant smokers. If there is truly a fine for smoking they should have made a mint the week I was there because there were smokers on both floors I experienced. Things that simply were not experienced by me when I stayed on the business floor. My strong suggestion to anyone, business floor or forgo this property. I certainly will in the future.
