Originally booked a 2 night stay at hotel across the street under the same management for a business trip for a convention being held at Javitz. After a mix up in the reservation we were given the option of sleeping 3 adult women in a king bed or moving to a room with double beds at this hotel. Being three adult women and the hotel not offering a roll a way bed option at all we had our reservation moved.
Upon arrival to the hotel the front desk informed us that the in room wifi may or may not be working as there was reportedly an "outage" at a nearby Time Warner tower. The room we were given had two double beds, both pushed against the wall, with a space no larger than a foot in between. The pillows provided were tiny and the pillowcases had to be tucked under in order to make it look like they fit.
Not only were we able to not connect to the wifi but our cable wasn't working either. After calling the support number for Time Warner provided on the information card in the room we were informed that that was a isolated incident pertaining to this hotel and not a tower outage like we were previously informed by the staff. It took 4 hours for the cable to come back on but every 60-90 seconds the screen would go black for about 20 seconds. Needless to say watching anything was impossible.
We stayed in room 200, which was directly to the left of the elevator and also above the hotel entrance. The fluorescent lighting above the entranceway was extremely bright and the sheer beige drapery did nothing to keep out the light. Our room stayed as bright throughout the night as it did at dusk, which made falling asleep to impossible.
The walls were thinner than paper and the conversations of other guests in surrounding rooms were crystal clear. We were initially grateful for the staff across the street for so graciously helping us find a room that sleeps three but shortly found that feeling fleeting. I wouldn't have paid $100/night to stay here let alone the near $400/weekday night we were charged. The money would have been much better spent with Amtrak commuting to and from DC for three days.
