A great location, but definitely NOT A GREAT HOTEL
Posted Jan 7, 2017
I've stayed at other HH Collection properties and I'm afraid that this one is just not worthy of carrying that moniker. This hotel is extraordinarily noisy making it difficult to get any rest day or night. From the 24 hour thumping, whirring, rumbling elevator noises to the hotel cleaning personnel who never seemed to be off duty and took much delight in banging up and down the hallways with carts and equipment, our stay was exhausting. Street noises too were difficult to restrict even though the hotel is equipped with wood shutters in addition to the usual drapery. Also in sharp contrast to other HN Collection properties, this one is in desperate need of basic repairs and maintenance. It seems a bit run down.
Our room was strangling outfitted with an old wardrobe and a small, single desk, so there was absolutely no place for two people to place their luggage. The bathroom was very odd. I appreciate that it's an old building and some compromises must be made, but shoehorning a bathroom into a space more fitting to be a long c-shaped closet is pushing the limits of what's acceptable.
At checkin, we were reminded that the breakfast was not included in our stay but I was told that I could prepay if I wished to add this to our stay. When I declined, I was aggressively advised that I would face additional charges if I changed my mind. It felt like a bullying/threatening/money grabbing tactic.
Last complaint at checkin our room was not ready and there was a major reservation
