Upon arrival, it is immediately apparent that the property is very run down. From the frayed carpet and drain plugs in the elevators, to the dirty breezeway area under which one enters, the first impression is not good.
I booked a room during Cherry blossom week for 279 a night. I first got room 219, and was shocked that such a room would be rented, at any price. The room smelled very strongly of mildew and chemicals. Everything was in disrepair: the light fixture hummed loudly, carpet was stained, old school television had a bullet hole or cigarette burn in the case and a splash of white paint on it, as did the bed frame. Outside the window was a view of a flooded roof top, with either a pump or hvac fan humming loudly. I asked for a new room and got 211. This room was much cleaner and even had a funky style that was pretty sweet. However it still had a smell of mildew and chemicals that was overpowering. It was positively unlivable.
I asked the front desk clerk what was up with the smell, and she said they were doing work on the 2nd floor. I asked her to cancel my stay and she kindly did so. Bottom line, this hotel is not worth consideration until it undergoes a complete renovation. You have been warned.
