My flight was cancelled and the airline put us up in the Ambassador. I refused to stay in the room they gave me and encouraged the couple traveling with me to refuse also. The room was a slum. I told the front desk that we would be going back to the airport to spend the night rather than stay in the assigned rooms. At that point we were given rooms in the "C" building. The rooms were better but even they could use improvement. Details, Details, Details. If the owner had spent the money he used purchasing boxed toothbrushes, hair combs, etc. on paint and grout he would have come out so much better. Fluff just does not trump clean.
I hope to return to Ethiopia in the next year. I will not be staying at the Ambassador.
They have an ad in the inflight magazine--very misleading.
