At first, the hotel was okay. I don't really expect anything spectacular in south beach. Check-in was fairly quick and didn't have any problems at all. The guy at the front desk said he would give me a room in the back to prevent from the ocean drive people traffic, that was appreciated. The elevator was a death trap, so after the first shot, I prevented getting in that again, besides it was only three flights. The room was mediocre, looked clean and didn't smell or anything. Thought it was funny that they chained down the tv remote. One thing that did bother me was the stupid rules with the mini bar, they muttered something about $25 dollars, but I just wanted to utilize it to keep things cold. They acted like they didn't want to give up the key.
The first night I slept okay with no problems. Woke up after a crazy night on Ocean Drive.
Decided to have breakfast in the hotel restaurant, since it was advertised at a reasonable price. They failed to tell me that my drink (a mimosa) was gonna cost me more than the damn breakfast. First annoyance.
Now it was time for dinner because of my laziness I gave the restaurant another shot, well I ordered the cheapest thing on the menu and a beer, since it was happy hour 2 for 1 special. Well to my surprise, the beer I ordered was like a six pack poured into a magarita bowl. I don't drink that much so this was extremely overwhelming for me. I was so pissed when I got the bill and saw that wonderful 2 for 1 cost me 25 bucks. Out of principle I took the second one to go after not even eating the first one. Second annoyance.
So the last night I was there after drinking two gallons of beer, I crashed hard. I woke up to check out to find bites all over my body!!!!!! I have never in all my hotel days experienced bed bugs. So now Im back in NY, looking like I had a fight with a mosquito. How can they bite on the last night, but not any of the other night?? Third of most of all the worst annoyance.
Now checking out pissed me off till no end. The guy at the front desk early in the morning was pathetic. Didn't know how to do anything without calling the sister hotel. There server was down so he forced me to pay my hotel fee by cash, now what if I didn't have cash?? This hotel was a huge disappointment. Next time I will stick to what I know, the catalina and doubletree. Thanks for the bugs, Majestic.
