Stayed at the Matrix July 19. Got the sterling suite as it looked super spacious. Got into the room and we both looked at each other and said 'whoa, looks way bigger in pics from the hotel's website'. Not exactly 'suite' but more large hotel room.
I was concerned about the noise as we were RIGHT beside the elevators but it wasn't too bad.
Was nice enough but certainly not for the price we paid. Some stains on the carpet, broken floor level heater. Nothing major. Bed is super comfortable. Great bedding. One thing that was frustrating is that nothing was open to order food or sit in at 2 pm!? No room service, restaurant/lounge wasn't open. That was a bit of a pain. Staff was hit and miss. Lovely woman at reception one min, stale unsmiling man the next.
Would I stay at the Matrix again? Perhaps... if the price was right. Spending over 300 on a 'large room' was too much for this hotel but maybe it was more expensive because of K Days. Lesson learned.
