I'm not one to generally trash hotels (even if my experience isn't perfect. I never expect that.) But, aside from the nasty rooms with dirty linens and cigarette butts and trash all over the place, I was locked out of my 9th floor room for about an hour. No big deal, a couple of trips down the stairwell (wouldn't advise that without some sort of oxygen filter and rubber boots) to get my key re-energized and back up to the 9th only to find I'm still locked out. The maintenance gentleman (a very nice gentleman, by the way) made his way up to the room to try his key with no luck. Ten minutes later he brings up his stethoscope. Still no luck. Then, ten minutes later he brings up the big-boy tools, rips off the door knob and, an hour later, I'm in. Fifteen minutes later, the new entry pad is fixed and we're back in business. I can live with all of that. An inconvenience, but, nonetheless, I'm in my room. Now, to call and ask for an hour and a half extension of my check-out time, you'd have thought I was asking them for the smallest child's left kidney. Holy cow, pretty much an eff-you to me. No apology, no phoney commiseration, just a "we've got your money, you're leaving, too bad for you" attitude. Highly NOT recommended.
