Don't stay here -
The hotel is ONE block away from the homeless shelter. Hubby went out at 9:00 a.m. on August 12th, 2005, and was mugged by 3 homeless men, they demanded money, hubby gave them all he had - hubby was lucky he left with his life.
When told the General Manager what happened - - - He said - "they won't hurt you - I'm from New York, and am used to homeless people - it's no big deal".
This hotel tells you they are "2 blocks away from burboun street" which they are. . . . the wrong two blocks - they are on the WRONG side of Canal Street -
Air Condiditoning did not work in the room - did not fix - was told that this is the best it gets.
Had coupons to eat for breakfast as part of our package, was told by front desk that kids age 10 and under eat free - - - -not - they tried to bill my room $40.00 for a bowl of oatmeal for my daughter, and an order of kiddie size french toast for my son. . . .
No king Size rooms at all have bathtubs, showers only - after being told that there were bathtubs - NOT.
The Pool is tiny, plus there are 1 1/2 flights of stairs to climb to get to it. . . father who walks with the assistance of a cane was told that there was an elevator, so he didn't have to climb stairs - . . . . NOT - it was broken - and was being used as a broom closet. Elevator obvioulsy has been broken for quite some time.
Was told I could use $100.00 Renaissance/Marriott Bonus Bucks at their facility - NOT - they would not accept them.
We checked out after one horrible night at this location. If you value your life - don't stay here.
