I stayed at this Heritage listed building last Saturday night at a cost of $209. The location is fantastic and is probably the best thing about this place. From the outside to the court yard area, it looks pretty impressive and different to the ordinary style of hotel. However, we were give the keys to a basement level studio. The roof was really low in the entry and bathroom and even at 5ft 4inches I couldnt raise my arm to brush my hair in the bathroom without whacking my hand.
I was disgusted by the state of the shower. It was filthy! Have they never heard of grout cleaner? I was so angry to see that I had paid this money for a room like this when my own home looks way more like a hotel than this! There is no way I would accept my home bathroom shower looking like this. Even in its dirtiest state, my home shower looks a hell of a lot cleaner than this.
There was no window in this room other than looking out onto the public atrium area. I couldn't leave the shutters of this window open as anyone could look down into the room so I had to close myself in. Therefore, the room was hot and stuffy and miniscule.
The bed was like what you would find in a cheap motel in the middle of nowhere. It made NYC hotel rooms look gigantic.
There were no tissues in the room either. The lighting was terrible - so gloomy.
We went down to the cafe Sunday morning within the buidling for an early breakfast and coffee to be told it did not open until 8am! Seriously!
I found this room overpriced and a real disappointment. Parking was away from the hotel and $30 (2pm Saturday until 7.30am Sunday). Despite what their website says, there was no parking discount.
I suggest they get an industrial cleaner onto those showers.
