This hotel was horrible. It smelled, it was loud, and the elevators didn't work.
It's under renovation, the work crew was rude when I tried to get through the door (they were blocking it).
I can talk all day about this horrible hotel. They kind of have a restaurant. They have pretty terrible food, and for some bizarre reason there's no room service, except for pizza. Also, you can't order the pizza the way you want, just as they come. No ingredient switching.
There's no vending on the floor I stayed on, just empty holes in the hallway. So I went to a different floor. Those machines were empty.
So, horrible, smelly, loud, and kind of weird. Thanks Alton Illinois.
Did I mention it was really bad?
Also, I took off my shoes in my room and the carpet seemed to be wet. Why would that be the case? I looked out my window and there was a weird old guy sitting shirtless by the indoor pool just staring at people. Was he the source of the smell? I don't know.
I will not return. I'll likely just stay in St. Louis and commute for my long term work project in the area.
The breakfast was also weird. I'm not sure how this hotel is still in business. It was so bad, that even if it was made into a four seasons, I wouldn't return.
Oh - now I remember that there were pubes on my toilet seat too. It wasn't much different than a bus station bathroom.
How much more do I need to write? Alton Illinois is home to the worlds tallest man and worst hotel.
