2/10 Poor

It’s a hard pass
Horribly small room. Bed was a very very mattress with a detached cushion on top. Uncomfortable as hell! Rug was gross. Ordered room service which never came. Reception didn’t care when I told her how horrible the stay was. Loud and noisy. Tiny bathroom.

Great hotel and staff poor soundproofing
The service staff was fantastic. The rooms leave to be desired when it comes to soundproofing. Lots of slamming doors and loud neighbours

4/10 Fair

Disappointed with our room
Bathroom was extremely small, especially the shower I am tall and had a hard time because it’s so small. there were like shutters for part of our ceiling and the view was nice but there was a huge wall and one small window, the picture of the room shows a bigger window. The furniture was not in great condition either. I did like all the charging ports in the room it was nice. Disappointing to say the least we paid more than $300 with taxes in and I was not impressed at all with the room. I’ve had nicer rooms for a heck of a lot less. The rest of the hotel was great but the room itself not so much.
