Well let's start with the good bit.
The staff were friendly and did the best that they could to be helpful. Good for them.
All in all, the hotel was clean, the food reasonable and the stay bearable - for a $150 a night hotel.
However, I have to say that I shall never stay at this hotel again and I shall probably by extension try to not stay in another hotel of the same brand.
When I am paying over 200 dollars a night for a hotel I do not expect:
- To find the faucet for the bath and shower hanging off the wall
- That the cistern in the bathroom is overflowing and making a constant noise (admittedly fixed the next day as soon as I reported it, but why did I have to report it?)
- A depressing and pervasive brown color scheme
- To be kept awake for the first two nights by rowdy guests in the corridors. If you are going to encourage party goers at the weekend, you could have the courtesy to sound isolate your rooms.
- Stained (*not* dirty, the hotel was quite clean) bedding.
- An internet service (at an extra $9.95 a night) which would occassionally drop my connection and freeze me out for 2-5 minutes.
Dissapointed, could do better, as I shall next time I have the choice.
