I stayed at Hotel Le Bleu for ease of use, parking, slower pace and neighborhood feel. Unfortunately there really aren't many choices as far as places to stay. When we arrived we were told that they didn't have a king room so we would be in a double. We didn't notice the lack cleanliness at first because we had to leave for an event directly after we arrived and by the time we returned it was midnight. Our room was on the street side of the hotel so was very loud early in the morning. On top of that it was really dirty which we hadn't noticed the when we checked in because we had to leave for an event directly after we arrived and by the time we returned it was midnight. However in the morning we saw that the curtain had a large greasy stain, the rug was stained in many places, the shower had a lot of mold and the opaque sliding glass door to the commode area had greasy finger prints all over it. In one corner I saw what looked to be someone's medication; clearly the room had not been well vacuumed. The housekeeping was so bad I questioned whether the sheets were changed between guests. We called the front desk and asked to be moved due to the noise, the double beds and the dirty room. The front desk agreed to move us to a king room on the back of the hotel. When I went to the lobby I talked with a gentleman about the lack of cleanliness in our first room. He expressed surprise and actually seemed to question if it was true. I asked if he wanted to see photos but he declined. It didn't seem that anyone was going to address the situation as far as making sure the room was properly cleaned. Amazingly our new room was lovely and clean; it was as if we were in a different hotel entirely, it was that different. I now see why the reviews of Hotel Le Bleu vary so wildly and why some people love it and others complain about it being dirty. After giving some thought about the disparity between the rooms the only thing I can think of that might explain it is that the double rooms may attract people who are in the area for MLBB games or concerts at Barclays Center and so are more likely to be partying while the king rooms might attract couples looking for a quieter, more romantic getaway…just a guess.
The other thing to consider about the rooms is that the commode area is not entirely private because it's the glass is opaque so you can actually see the person who is using the bathroom sitting on the commode, in silhouette. Unless you are really close with the person/people you are staying with I would expect most people might find this uncomfortable.
