Stayed there on the night of 4/16/2012 for a business meeting the next morning. Upon arriving we circiled the hotel a few times before finding this place has NO parking. Luckily accross the street was the museum parking lots and there were a few vacancies. Upon getting to my room 909 I found it to be very small but that is expected in down town real estate.
After putting my luggage in my room, I met my coworkers at the bar/restaurant. The bar did not have any standard domestic beers. When my coworkers and I looked at the menu, the prices were shocking. We ordered our food, my coworkers both had the pork cutlet, I ordered the beef loin. I could not believe when our food arrived at the tiny portions. The food was very good, but I left very hungry. Upon returning to the room I went to use the bathroom, this is where is gets worse! Upon lifting the seat, I noticed blood under the front of the seat. After putting the seat back down I notice a line of brown material basically leaving a print of a previous users butt crack.
I would never go there again, and would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I am attaching photos of the nasty toilet seat.
