This property is run down and very hard to get a good nights sleep with all the noise. They allow dogs, so the room next door had a dog barking all night. When the air was running the vent made an annoying clicking sound.

Even though I had paid in FULL through Expedia, upon check-in the front counter agent demanded a GUEST AMENITY FEE of $29.95, even though I'm not using ANY of them. After the $100 deposit, the next morning the bill under the door had charged to my $33.77 as there is also a GUEST AMENITY FEE TAX added! I will not stay here again. There wasn't even any coffee IN the room, and water bottles at $6 each.

A great way to tarnish a hotel visit is to wake up on the morning you leave to find a sizable bill slid under the door for "guest amenities." I thought I had paid for the hotel via Expedia. No further charges were mentioned at check-in. So, $100 was added to the bill at check-out. Plus, a $6 charge from the wet bar. We did know we had a wet bar. We searched the room and found a drawer in a dresser chock full of candy, liquor shots, and what not. How would someone know if something was missing? It was a nice, clean, historic hotel near Union Square. I wished I known what I was paying when I made the reservations.The only amenities we used were the toilet and the elevator...

location is fantastic, rooms are quite small, bathrooms are very cramped, lounge is nice but with the open front entrance can be quite cool. Amenities? did not know it had any, until I was charged $30 per day for an 'Amenity Charge', for which we did not use any of the 'amenities'.
