My cell phone would not work on Saturday. No one in the hotel could help me call out on room phone and my family could not get through on a call to the hotel. This went on from 8a to 11:30a. Totally unacceptable phone service.

Warning: the 11th floor is just below the nightclub that operates Wed-Sat until 4am--and it's LOUD. Our room came with a built-in white noise speaker, but it didn't really cancel the thumping beat of the DJ's offerings. Other than that, we loved the place: even the basic room w/ king bed is reasonably sized. The shower is luxurious, and the bedding is mostly cotton. Loved the round window! The pool was closed for the season, but that makes is want to come back in the summer, but to stay Sun-Tues. Bring Ambien!

The room itself was "cool" and had a great view but unfortunately, that's where the good parts of our stay stopped. Despite having to pay the daily facilities fee the hotel ran out of water so we had to purchase bottled water daily, the pool was closed despite being in the 70's for our stay, and there was no room service available (we could order to the lobby bar but would have to pick up our order down stairs), the Gym was closed, the rooftop was closed 2 of our 3 nights and when we wanted to go up to see it on our last night we were told we needed a reservation or a commitment to bottle service. The manager Anthony was extremely unhelpful when I asked why we paid a facilities fee without having access to the facilities he said it was for the "free water' which they ran out of forour stay and then that it was just an added tax. There were terrible smells in the lobby area by the elevators, I am not sure if it was the salon but it literally smelled like chemicals and urine. The bad smells didn't stop there the room we had (Platinum King) had a cow raw hide skin bench that made the room smell like barn animals, not like leather but literally like being on a farm (I grew up on a farm I know the smell well) Despite paying for double occupancy the room only came with 1 robe, we never received another despite requesting from housekeeping. The room itself looked cool but there was missing hardware and the furniture was scuffed up and chipped, nothing was maintained well

dealt this racism, denied access to hotel from security even though I had my keycard and reservation on me, bass thumping through the walls until 4am, non guests leaving illicit substances around the hotel, being catcalled by inebriated security, and still no response from their corporate team about the poor experience.
