I am very disappointed about the customer service. This is not what I expected. I was given a horrible room facing parking lot, the tv did not work, they moved me to another room at the same level looking at an enclosed parking lot. This place is not worth the money, it’s a 2 star hotel. Also, it looks that they don’t like third parties reservations, like Travelocity. A friend made a reservation contacting the hotel directly, her room was amazing with a balcony and nicer overall with a working tv. I don’t recommend at all this hotel

The room was not clean upon entry and when I called to request a few things be fixed and replaced it took over 8 hours. Staff was not helpful and the hotel was not offering any assistance

We enjoyed the very helpful staff at the front desk. The view and close proximity to Little Italy was a plus.

Room was very small. Our toilet would not flush. Water pressure was nonexistent. Towels were very worn. Definitely could use updating.
