Wrong Weekend to Stay, (but still not good)
Posted Apr 19, 2017
I was so excited to come the NO. We picked this hotel because of the great reviews and amazing photos. The best part was the location away from all of the busy streets, but still walking distance to everything. The hotel is dirty. The carpet makes you question walking on it barefoot. The window opened to an exterior wall that I could touch, no view at all. Two sheets on the bed and no blanket covers. They did have this "decorative" fabric at the end of the bed that was so dirty we almost asked hotel staff to remove it. It was covered in stains, and not just from dirt. We arrived and... there was a wedding going on so the bar, the gym and the courtyard were filled and we were not permitted in those areas. We were told we could walk to another hotel to swim or use the fitness room. The next day we awoke to construction! They were changing the windows above the courtyard. (Drills, wood prying apart, hammering.) Paint, sawdust, and debris fill the pool area and courtyard again. When I went out there, I was covered in sawdust immediately. We definitely chose the wrong weekend for this hotel. We asked why this was not disclosed during booking and the staff did not have an answer. I'm sure the construction will bring nice new windows and shutters, but it was terrible we had to stay there during that and that it affected the common outdoor areas, let alone woke us up. The best thing I can say is we could walk to everything.
