We planned to stay in this hotel for 2 nights but the morning after our first night, when I went to take a shower I discovered ants all around the bathtub. They were pharaoh ants and coming from inside the walls. Knowing a bit about ants, I realize that these are a huge issue and very difficult to get rid of. Likely the entire building we were in was infested.
I promptly packed up my stuff and complained at the front desk.
They didn't seem surprised, but offered to switch us to a different room or spray the room we were in. Since I believe the ants were probably everywhere, I obviously didn't want to switch rooms and while spraying might have kept them away for the one more night we were supposed to stay, I was traveling with 2 children and don't want them exposed to whatever chemicals were being sprayed. I also didn't want to risk those ants getting in my luggage, so it wasn't worth the risk.
I also wanted to say that the website for this hotel says they offer a continental breakfast with several items, however when I was at the desk explaining my issue I noticed that their breakfast consisted of coffee, juice and danishes and nothing else. That is not what they advertise.
In the end, the staff was very kind and understanding and did refund our money for the night we wouldn't be staying with no issues.
