I wrote a letter to the owner of this hotel, (something I have NEVER DONE) only to find this sight afterwards and when I read it, I saw that everyone who stayed at this hotel had the same reaction as us. My girlfriend has stayed at the W and found it to have very nice accomodations. Not one thing bad about the stay. She suggested we do the same, until I, unfortunately, made the suggestion that we stay at the Keating for 2 nights because the pictures and description looked appealing from hotels.com. NEVER AGAIN >>>>>>>>
Our first night, we spent endless time trying to clean up the water from the shower (with no door) because it got all over our room and I was afraid my girlfriend would slip and hurt herself. The next morning we called for towels, and after 20 minutes, I had to go running up and down the stairs to try and find people to direct us where the towels were.
SLEEP ????????? What hotel is in the main district with a bar next door and has single paned windows???? For $300.00 a night (plus 30.00 a night for parking?) At least at the Howard Johnson, you know what to expect and don't mind retrieving your own towels for $55.00 a pop.
After we complained to the management upon leaving, all she had to say was, "WELL YOU DECIDED TO STAY HERE".
WOW Now that we know better, we decide to not repeat that mistake.
