And that may be an understatement. First, when my coworker and I checked in, they had lost my reservation. The desk attendant was friendly but seemed annoyed to be working there.
When I got to my room, it wreaked of potpourri. Not in a good way. It was the cheap stuff (think your grandma's bathroom). Overwhelming and nauseating. I assume it used to be a smoking room, and they were just covering it up. I'd rather deal with the smoke.
The furniture was banged up, and the linens were old and dingy. The beds were small.
I was awoken early in the morning by the sound of construction equipment. My coworker had an even worse experience as his room was in the MIDDLE of all the construction. In fact, he was awoken at 6:30 a.m. when a strange man entered his room and was startled to find someone sleeping there. ""Oh, I didn't know they put anyone down here,"" he said. ""You know, there's construction going on down here, right? Well, sorry. Try to get some sleep.""
When my coworker exited his room that morning, ALL of the rooms in his wing were open and being worked on, except for his of course.
Needless to say, we checked out early.
