6/10 Good

The hotel is a bit old. It's great if you're looking to stay in a property with a historical aspect. Check-in was troubling. I don't recall on the Hotel's description here on Expedia or on their own website that the deposit was $400 up front. I stayed for 6 days so that should have been around $170. The room I stayed in was okay. The bathroom was small and the furniture was peeling. How you watch TV in the room was a little new which was appealing. You use a Chromecast and then just link your favorite streaming services to it. However, the chromecast kept cutting out. The room service was also not always available. I was told that they stopped at 4pm. However, I would leave in the morning to go sight-seeing and my room would not be cleaned at all. The bar in the lobby was lovely, however the food area where you can buy breakfast and lunch was often unattended. I had an okay stay but I felt that given how old and expensive the hotel was the service could have been a lot better. It was disappointing.

The only highlight of this hotel is a man named James. Everything else was crap. Other staff were very dismissive. The room had peeling wall paper. Everything is dark, old and dingy. Neighborhood is sketchy as well.

2/10 Poor

Refused to refund my stay even though I was unable to travel due to corona virus. This rating applies to both Expedia and The Hotel Whitcomb. Both of these companies had the choice to do the right thing, neither did. Not only will I never use Expedia or this hotel again, I will make it my mission to dissuade others from doing so. I hope both of these disgusting profiteering companies cease to operate ASAFP.

The rooms look much larger in the pictures, it was challenging move past the overly large chair. The lobby was clean, most staff were inviting. There was however one night staff the called my partner an impolite name to say the very least which made her very uncomfortable and upset. I also just checked my credit card and there is a $60 charge from the hotel eventhough we left the room in ok condition (trash in trash cans, all dirty laundry in a pile) I will not be staying at this hotel again.
