Definitely NOT a Four Star
Posted May 30, 2016
The Astor Hotel is located on a lovely property, but it does NOT deserve a 4 Star rating. We arrived two hours after check-in time and maid service carts were everywhere, could hardly navigate the very narrow hallways to our room with bags. The room was clean, the bed looked HARD and the bathroom was tiny. I'm not sure that my husband's shoulders would have fit in the shower. There was a terrace, but it overlooked the roof of the first floor. Furnishings were old and looked well worn. I asked for, and received a key to an alternate room, it was more disappointing than the first. We left, had lunch, then made alternate reservations in another nearby hotel. We returned, picked-up our luggage (we never unpacked) and checked-out. The staff was gracious. I said I was sorry, but their hotel was not what we were expecting. It is an older hotel which is not the issue. The hotel we moved to was much older, but certainly met the standard of what I consider to be a Four Star Hotel. The Astor should listed as 3 Star, at best.
