THIS PLACE IS INFESTED WITH BED BUGS!!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!!!
The government HAD this hotel on it's list of places that accept its per diem. We checked in late and awoke to HUNDREDS of blood sucking bed bugs crawling all over our pillows and sheets. There were blood spots all over the bed.
The people that worked in the hotel came to the room and said, VERBATIM, "Ew. Sorry. Yeah, those are bed bugs. We'll move you to another room and take care of you."
They moved us to another room where we found MORE bed bugs. When I asked them to sterilize our things, they gave us grief. The people that work here are not very accommodating AT ALL. We were charged FULL PRICE and were COVERED in bites for weeks. It was misery.
We were so disturbed by this that we didn't sleep for DAYS. When we got home, we freaked out about the possibility of bringing them home with us. We RE-Sterilized everything. Luckily, we haven't seen any...but if we do...OMG.
We were utterly disgusted when we got the bill (though the gov't was paying) and it was FULL PRICE. Not ONLY did they NOT take care of us like they said, they ruined some of our clothes, we had freaking BED BUGS and they were not friendly when we very kindly and patiently asked them to help us out with our stuff.
This place is an absolute nightmare and should be torn down. The government is now taking it off the list of places they will send their employees.
The elevator is so inconvenient and takes FOREVER. HATE THIS PLACE.
