For the price that you pay to stay in this over-priced hotel, I would expect nicer rooms and a peaceful sleep.
The room was outdated, the bathroom was tiny and crammed. The toilet barely fit in and you had to squeeze between the seat and the sink to fit in. The bathtub was quite small, not very comfy and kinda of difficult to take a nice soak. I expected a nice large tub for the money that we paid for our room.
The room service menu was ridiculously expensive. $10.00 for one egg!! I kid you not. Plus add on another $4.00 for the delivery charge and that's one mighty expensive breakfast!
The food I had for supper was presented nicely, but honestly was not tasty, I thought it would be gourmet food but the chicken tasted like it had been boiled. I make better tasting chicken and I am by no means a chef. I think for the food you get there, you are paying for it looking nice but little else.
And the absolute worst thing- the constant banging and rumbling of not 1 train going by all night, but TWO all night long!!!! That's right, trains right outside our window, 2 tracks side by side. If I jumped out my window (believe me, I was contemplating it at 4:00 am after very little sleep!) I would have landed smack on top of a train. The constant noise of these trains ALL NIGHT LONG and the stench of their fumes made for a terrible sleep.
No, not worth the money to stay here. The plus was a large room and a comfy bed but because of the trains, that comfy bed was wasted.
