Originally planned to stay at this hotel for three nights. We booked this hotel because of its proximity to the GRE testing location (just a few blocks away). Unfortunately, I didn't read reviews before making the appointment.
Our first negative experience happened before we even left home - around 7 pm we received a call asking if we were planning on checking in. Apparently they were fully booked and wanted to know if we were still planning on coming in. Even though they had my credit card information (and I assumed would have charged me for not making the appointment), they apparently expected us to arrive by a certain time.
When we finally arrived and checked in, we were disappointed. The halls and elevator smelled strongly of smoke and the halls were narrow and dark. Even though we were in a non-smoking room, the room also smelled. The room and linens seemed clean, however the towels seemed too new (as in not-yet-washed). The mattress was also incredibly uncomfortable. It just seemed like they cut costs everywhere possible.
We got out of there as quickly as possible - after two nights (one before and after the GRE) we cancelled our third night and stayed at a nearby hotel that was a huge improvement.More
