2/5 Poor

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Extremely FALSE advertising!!!
Everything about the advertisement for this hotel was misleading. There was no functioning restaurant/bar which meant we had to trek up and down 15 flights of stairs plus a perilously steep hill because both of their elevators were broken the entire time we were there. The stairs were dangerously broken as well and we had to haul our 40+lb suitcases up and down hazardous stairs. We are lucky we did not break our necks. The room we were given had an extremely strong chemical smell. They gave us a different room that smelled less of chemicals but we really had no choice but to stay where we were as our choices were to spend all day dealing with the issues or go into the only other hotel with vacancy with a $350 a night price tag. I tried numerous times to contact Hotels.com to speak to a person so I could turn the phone over to the manager to resolve this but Hotels.com continuously disconnected me and never got me to a live person. The manager Sergio said he’d be happy to refund us but had to speak to Hotels.com right then and we would have been refunded and on our way to search for another place to stay. I was unable to get a hold of anyone at Hotels.com. I called and called and just kept getting disconnected or told to press different numbers to get to an agent but never got to a live person. The 2 people who worked there were friendly and accommodating but that’s where the pleasantries of this place ended.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Sun set suite
Hotel has been cloesd for what seems like awhile, you pay for the view definitely nice for the area. It’s got all the amenities but they don’t use them, pictures are deceiving, there was no patio furniture to enjoy the sunset with the suite. The pools water level was low. They don’t operate the swim up bar, no restaurant but they do offer a free small filling breakfast on the rooftop which is nice. If you can get this hotel for below average price definitely worth it until they start using the amenities it used to.
