My biggest problem with this place is that they could only charge the credit card my employer reserves rooms with and not my personal credit card. This creates a gigantic hassle when I do my weekly expense reports. This is 2008. Why can't they charge my card and not the one Tramex made the reservation with? When I checked in, the guy that met me at the property assured me that they would charge the card I gave him, but then when I called to check out, they told me that there is no way to charge that card. WTF?
The room I stayed in was right by the building's door so loud people kept waking me up most of the night. I'd say that's the fault of inconsiderate guests not the hotel though. There is a street light right outside the window that's as bright as the sun, so it's impossible to make the room dark. I mean that sucker was bright. I didn't sleep well here becasuse of these two reasons.
The room was clean and had a nice TV. There is no Internet access and it's not a big room, but good enough for me. The air conditioner dripped condensation constantly. There was damage on the hardwood floors from this happening. I just put a garbage can under it so that the floor wouldn't get wet.
By far, the strangest thing about this place is the lack of a shower curtain. I really don't understand that. The bathroom had some fancy bubbling tub and a really nice shower head, but there was no shower curtain. There wasn't even a rod to hang one from. I struggled to not get the floor wet at first, but then just gave in and let it happen. Between that and the dripping air conditioner, I'm surprised the floors are ever dry.
I have pretty low standards, but I didn't really like staying here and never will again. I'm in NYC on business for another 6 months and I won't be selecting this place again. It has potential, but the fact that they can't charge the right credit card is a show stopper.
