I check in and there is only 1 person @ the front desk. She continues to stand in front of me on the phone for 10 minutes before acknowledging my presence, despite me standing awkwardly in front of her 3 feet away. Meanwhile, four other employees standby the elevator, dressed like they are hitting up The Roxbury, playing on their phones.
Next, I get a key, that doesn't work for the room. I go back to the front desk and there is a different person there. He is also on the phone. I wait another 10 minutes to get a new key. Good times.
I finally get into the room. The vent for the A/C is loose and making a clearly audible, annoying sound. Shortly thereafter, I flush the toilet, which runs for about 20 minutes. The clocks are the wrong time (as in hour and minute aren't close to the real local time). Finally, I turn on the TV the next morning and it is @ the max volume.
Seriously awesome experience. I would rather take the money spent on this room, burn it outside in the adjacent park and sleep on a bench.
Notably, I have never provided online feedback for any product or service in my life.
