I stayed here one night before meeting up with a tour group for my vacation. I'm glad I didn't stay any longer. The first impression is good; the lobby is clean and contemporary and the front desk staff is very friendly. But that's about the only good thing there is to say. After leaving the lobby, you find a very old, musty and rundown building. Once i got to my room, I was extremely disappointed to find out that my room, along with what seems like most other rooms, only faces an interior courtyard. This courtyard is not some beautiful, large landscaped courtyard. It was a small, concrete covered space with a single tree in the middle. And other rooms lined every wall, so if you wanted some sunshine through the ONLY window in your room, everybody else was going to see into your room. The room was not appealing either. It was very small, and dirty. For $160 a night, I expected to have a mini fridge in the room. No mini fridge and NO COMPLIMENTARY BREAKFAST. It's hard to find a hotel nowadays that does not have a complimentary breakfast, especially when paying this much. There was a curtain covering the closet in my room that was covered in dust at the top of it. I don't think it had ever been cleaned. The next morning, it took me about 10 minutes before I could get any hot water in the shower. And when I did, the shower head was almost a trickle. I was just glad that I was only there one night. I stayed in a super 8 motel a few days later for $52 a night, and I liked it better than this hotel. I would not recommend anyone to stay here.
