After dealing w Guestek all morning, I'm still getting less than 2mbps speed. Never mind that Internet cost $10 a day. As a platinum member I was checked in and placed on the 11th floor (1123) and given access to the elite lounge since supposedly there were no upgrades - I've yet to be upgraded as a platinum member so no surprise there. After trying to access the lounge down the hall, my keys didn't work so I had to back downstairs and get the access loaded to my cards, as t seemed the girl at check in failed to do it. Hayford, a gentleman that helped later was the ONLY bright spot of this place. Rooms are very outdated, and noisy as you hear everything in the atrium in your room. I also had to call down and get a newspaper delivered to my room, another perk I'm suppose to receive for being platinum although clearly other gold passport members had received theirs.
Once I finally made it to the elite lounge I was greeted by nothing more than a small room w a Keurig, couple of coffee choices, out of sugar packets, more than one opened milk cartons in the fridge that offered a few Pepsi's and a couple of juices, nothing to snack on except a bowl of apples in which one was rotten (I swear to you - ROTTEN), no TV's, nowhere to sit except at the two computer stations.
Don't even think about eating at Morton's Steak House inside the hotel. The guy next to us ordered a shimp cocktail off the bar bites menu and was served a bowl of crushed ice and ONE shrimp on it. We all laughed and asked if it was a joke. I guess the bartender felt bad and brought him one more for good measure. My steak, salad, and 1 side w 2 beers cost me over $100. Can we say blown per diem!
