I am staying here as I write. I am in the second building, the extended stay "Rez".
The Internet is almost non existant. If you buy a cable and hook up to the wired LAN it is almost tolerable. I have asked many times in the last 2 weeks to get this fixed but it has so far been ignored with vague promises.
The cleaning is non-existent. I pay $260 a day before all the various taxes and the best they can do is carry out my garbage. I phoned front desk once and asked if a hoover could be run round the room, it was, but I feel that should not be a special request.Bed has been changed once in 2 weeks, by special request. The rooms are OK, kitchen pretty well appointed, TV's are a joke. Actually there is one flat screen but I cant hook an HDMI into it because of the way it has been bolted to the wall. The other 2 TV's are 1980's and the reception is faint snow at very best. Haven't even turned on the flat screen because of the crap programming in Canada, but that is another issue.
My room overlooked the street at ground level and was missing a bit of curtain, and also insulation, so every noise from outside was heard. It was the beginning of winter so I had a constant draft coming in the window. The fireplace in the room did not work. etc.etc. Dont stay here!!
I am staying here with colleagues in 6 rooms. We have made alternate arrangements for our return visit next month at the Merit...newer and hopefully better organised. A loss of about $2000 a day to this "hotel"
