I knew I wasn't getting a five star hotel when I booked one night at the Colony for $118 a night. But the photos they use on the website are of only a couple of rooms at the front of the hotel. The rest of the rooms, apparently, have a view of the alley. The room itself wasn't too bad, but certainly wasn't up to the standard of the rest of our vacation. But it was only one night and we made it through the night. The best part was being just a half block away from our morning breakfast spot, The News Cafe. The strip in front of the hotel is really wild at night, with hawkers trying to get you into their establishments, each with their own entertainment right in front of the sidewalk. People eating on the sidewalk with tons of people walking by, a couple of guys walking around with a monkey and a huge snake, trying to get people to pay $20 to take a photo of them. Also, the Colony needs to replace the burned out "O" in two sides of their marquee. We stayed previously at the Savoy, which is in a much quieter area.
