I needed a place to "live" for a few weeks while waiting for my rented house to be readied. The rents in the area are astronomical, so this was the best I could do. At $2000/month (biweekly rate) it was priced above its value, but when I renewed, the price was even higher, even with the advance payment discount.
The room is big enough, a studio with kitchenette. If it delivered according to quality standards it would be fine. But too many things were just a little off.
Lighting is one. The only windows are directly on the public walkway (this is true on all floors), so if you open your drapes you have no privacy. And the only drapes are completely opaque. They could have put in another layer of gauze, but no, you have to use artificial light all the time. And the artificial lights are all cold and glaring. They could have put a softer/warmer bulb in a couple of places for mellow lighting at night. I guess making the "extended stay" comfortable is not their agenda.
Supposedly, the rooms are equipped for cooking your own meals. I had one pan, a lid that doesn't fit, no pots, no mixing bowls. I only have plates and forks because I asked the housekeeper to find some for me.
Air conditioning is antiquated. Cools okay but kind of noisy and has to be adjusted manually.
There's no restaurants close by, so stock up on breakfast food. Don't rely on the "grab and go breakfast" for anything but coffee and a way-too-sugary, long-shelf-life muffin.
This stuff doesn't matter when you only stay one or two nights, but after a month it's a major annoyance.
