We stayed for two nights when I had surgery at the nearby hospital. We arrived late in the evening after work. As I recall we had a room with an entrance off the street. The desk clerk led us to the entrance, let us in, showed us the room, and how to adjust the wall mounted heater then left. The room was not large enough for a closet. There was only a hook on the back of the bathroom door and a chair to hang up clothes. We later found out a package of earplugs on the single night table was there for a good reason; a late night gym and several bars next to the hotel. The room was ice cold. We tried to turn on the heater but it was broken. We called the desk and a portable electric heater was delivered. The next day during my surgery my wife complained about the room and got a modest discount off the insane $180 rate. That next night I stayed in a recovery room. My wife walked the 3 blocks back from the hospital and saw where one of the local urbanite progressives had left a steamer with TP on the sidewalk within a dozen yards of the hotel to top off the ambiance.
