Where to start! I would say this is the worst hotel experience ever. Surprised to find the hotel going through renovation and atmosphere was very depressing...when I made reservatons directly with the hotel we were not informed. Had to enter through the back of hotel, very run down neighborhood, carry luggage up stairs as no ramp available.
Our room for $200!!! Tiny tiny tiny. So small the chair was placed under the TV so you hit your head if you tried to sit down, air conditioner unit was pointed directly at the bed so you were in a wind tunnel when trying to sleep, and lots of street noise. The "ocean" view began with looking directly at the 1st floor roof and the iron railing of the fire escape. Can't believe we had to pay $200 for this.
Then there was the restaurant. Food was very good but getting our food took forever. While the staff was nice, they were very untrained and it seemed like they had never worked in a restaurant before. Actually all the entire hotel staff seemed untrained.
Perhaps in its day this Hotel was grand but now the grounds were quite worn out and the surrounding area dingy.
