We stayed in 3 different rooms for 5 nights. For the first time, I required an accessible room due to recovering from an ankle break. The 5th floor room was wonderful and Motif would have received a great review had we had this the entire stay. We had one night there, checked out for a side trip to Victoria, and checked back in for the remaining 4 nights. The 3rd floor accessible room was next to a staff area that served the meeting rooms. It was noisy, including clanking dishes, staff radio, and a jackhammer like noise. We asked to be moved after a night.
The 9th floor accessible room was as if we were in a different hotel. While the other rooms were updated, this room was bad (there were no others available). The AC did not always work. There were no towel bars at all in the bathroom, and there was no shelf in the shower for toiletries. Think about a disabled person trying to use soap, shampoo, etc. when there is no place to put them in the shower. The room was nowhere near as good as the other rooms.
While the staff was very nice and the hotel is in a good location, I was disappointed. I really did want to love this place.
