8.8 Great
Pros:- High ceilings in the room - Cleanliness - Friendly Staff - Location of the Hotel
Cons:- Toilet could have been a little bigger. It felt like my 5 year old school's toilet.
2.5 Bad
Pros:Nothing. Would never recommend this hotel.
Cons:The hotel is surrounded by a large homeless population right outside. Parking is an additional $51 a day that was not disclosed at booking. The WiFi “package” which is a mandatory fee of $35 a night was also not disclosed. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
6.0 Okay
Pros:The hotel was in a central location, close to everything and easy to get an Uber. The free high-speed internet was definitely a plus.
Cons:The bed was very uncomfortable and very disappointing. The hotel was situated in a sketchy party of town. I also saw some staff members get very impatient with someone whose English was clearly not their first language when asking for their last name a few times because they didn't initially understand the question.
2.0 Bad
Cons:The Kayak lists parking as an amenity. This is false. Ended up leaving the hotel immediately after getting my room keys from a jerk at the front desk and learning I could not park anywhere. Even when I attempted to pay for their valet parking which cost over 50% of the value of the room, I was denied service due to the fact that I have a pet in the car (a pet that would have stayed in the car over night). I'm now going through hoops and loops to get a refund (surprise! So far no and later a weak maybe), since the booking was made based on false information on the Kayak listing. Can you guys help facilitate the refund?
2.5 Bad
Pros:Cleaning staff work very hard - rooms are clean
Cons:One person in front desk at any time - lineup is long. Staff is abrupt and rude. Neighbourhood is scary and dangerous. No food - only Starbucks, no restaurant (it looks like it went out of business). Key cards needed recoding every day ( huge inconvenience) Do NOT stay here - too expensive and it’s a horrible experience.
4.0 Mediocre
Pros:It was a room with a bed
Cons:No coffee, no water, dark room, noisy hallway, expensive
5.1 Passable
Pros:Staff was friendly and room was clean on the one day I three they actually cleaned it.
Cons:Was in the ghetto surrounded by hopeless people with knives who threatened to stab us.
7.7 Good
Pros:Well restored historic building. Room was clean with nice touches of quality. Friendly service
Cons:Registration desk/area decor a bit drab and depressing.
8.8 Great
Pros:Friendly staff
Cons:Furniture and carpets a bit worn
3.7 Poor
Cons:Booked through priceline, and received a handicapped room
