This is not my first time staying at this hotel. I was a frequent guest in the early 2000's but haven't been here in many years. Hotel lobby and exterior has had major upgrades and looks very good. Plenty of loud drunks in the lobby to welcome me.
Once you step on the elevators, it's a different story. Elevators are loud and old. They need to be remodeled.
Stepped onto my floor and felt like I was walking on 1970's casino style carpeting.
Room was ok. Decent bed. Had to call maintenance to get HBO going on my TV. Was difficult to change channels as they have a funky desktop box that you have to aim the remote control at.
Bathroom needs to be remodeled. Tub drained slowly and water pressure from the shower was poor. The shower head looks like it was invented by a caveman.
They should have saved some money on the lobby renovations and renovated the rooms more.
