My friend and I came to stay at the Belvedere on the recomendation of a friend who had been there a few years ago. This past weekend wasour first experience in Cherry Grove/ Fire Island. The Cherry Grove community is wonderful, restaurants are vastly over priced but the area is wonderful. The BELVEDERE Hotel is a mess. We entered the palatial hotel expecting to find a superior property. We reached this assumption by the room pricing - VERY expensive for a pretty view and that is it. The rooms are dusty, the beds are very dirty made up with dingy sheets and in many areas, the place is falling apart, ceilings crumbling and flaking paint everywhere. The "TV" room reaks of sweat and cigarettes and the mini vistas in and outside of the hotel are badly in need of some care and cleaning. This hotel must have been wonderful in day but someone needs to CLEAN THIS UP! The staff is polite but the cleaning crew seems confused and misdirected. The chandeliers in every hallway and the great room (off limits to guests but clearly viewable from our second floor room) were dingy and covered with dust. The windows were dirty, the floors were sticky. I asked about having our bathroom cleaned when someone had urinated all over the seat in the communal bathroom and the cleaning staff laughed and said, "it must have been a good night." The two in keepers - one seems disinterested and the other is a presence in the hotel but seems to see nothing. Not a good value for the money. For a Washington D.C or New York price, you get very little. Clean it up!
I did notice a few newer rooms as I walked around - ask to see the room and check the sheets - they...
