Why ever would a hotel with the reputation of the InterContinental rent out a room in which the bathroom sink drained so slowly the basin would fill to the brim in the time it took me to wash my face? (There wasn't a drain stopper either, but, heck, who needed one?) Oh, and there was no clock in the room. No alarm clock by the bed -- not even a time display on the tv (because it was one of those old tube televisions). Add that to the fact that they tried to charge me a second time for my prepaid room, and, well, this is one place I can't recommend to anyone but the desperate. That they put me next to the elevator and I had to listen to the thrum of the cables all night seems sorta par for the course. The only "plus"? A comfy pillow-top mattress.
