Nice little hotel, paid $119 on hotels tonight. Likely you could negotiate with the front desk for $65, as they would be making more than with the booking from Hotels tonight and it costs less than $25 to change a room.
Lobby is nice
Front desk staff helpful
Room very small even for inexpensive in NYC hotels
Went to bed very tired. In the morning I found the sheets had several blood stains. After a quick self-exam I realized I had no cuts or scrapes or scabs... so very unlikely the blood is mine. Most interestingly, the blood was on the top and bottom sheets. So what does this lead us to conclude?
Either I am bleeding and do not know it
When they change the sheets and clean them and put them back they check for blood stains and make sure to get bloody top & bottom sheets on the same beds
So many sheets in this hotel are blood stained that even with the volume and randomness of laundry; pairs of sheets with blood stains end up in the same bed
Someone slept in this bed before me, bled on the sheets and the sheets were not changed....
Disgusting as it sounds, option 3 is the most likely......
Would I stay here again, sure, I would just demand they change the sheets at check in while I watched.
The rest of the place was clean...
