First of all my company booked the room for me. They were asked if the room should cover meals in the restaurant, lounge, movies etc. I was extremely surprised when I arrived and they had no restaurants or lounges. In fact they have nothing here. Next off the front counter person told me that the internet would be down for an hour or so as they are doing some work on it. Just then several people came down asking if it was back working again, and that it had been down for two days. Since I work in IT, I talked to the guy working on it. He was another front desk guy and knew practically nothing about fixing this thing. After some prodding, he eventually told me that a friend of his was going to come look at it tomorrow, and it would be down at least till then. The phones kept cutting me off and staying off for 10-15 minutes each time. They said they were resetting them for some reason. Im here for work and depend on the internet and the phone. I was stuck because the other hotels were booked up by the time I found out about all of this. Also, the cable only had a few channels working, and the pay per view was not working. Did I mention that the carpet was filthy and that there were strange little bugs in the bathroom on the floor...small with a round front and pointy end with lots of legs all along them. I dont know what they were but they were gross. All in all this was the worst hotel experience Ive ever had and I travel for my work a lot. Find a cheap rundown hotel for $50 rather than spend the $150 my company paid for this one and you will be much happier.
