How to Get There
I stayed here twice. The first visit the ac broke down and it was a little warm but we got through it, Stuff happens and you just deal with it. one year later I was back with friends and the ac did not work. My friend that was with me from Mexico talked to one of the employees about it. the employee was very sorry but confided that the ac was not on because the hotel was not very booked. Apparently, this is a vanity project by someone that knows nothing about the business. It is too bad since the hotel is very pretty and in the middle of La Condesse.
As a huge Art Deco lover, I was very excited to stay at this hotel which is in a great location. The first disappointment was that when I booked directly through their website, two fares were available- one that was less expensive but did not allow for any cancellations, and another that for $20 USD more said it could be cancelled. I went for the more expensive one, and received a confirmation email that said “no cancellations”. When I emailed the hotel to ask for this to be adjusted, the reply was that they could not do anything as THEIR OWN website automatically generated the reply.
When we arrived at the hotel we were given a very small room and there was absolutely no hot water. After a while they did upgrade us to a room where the shower did work(unfortunately after we had already unpacked). The towels were hard and scratchy, and there was no coffeemaker in the room, but otherwise it was nice. We requested extra towels but none came. Then the next morning, a Sunday at 7:00 AM, with the “do not disturb” sign on the door, someone knocked on the door to bring them!
We asked about coffee(I believe that breakfast was meant to be included), and someone at the front desk told my boyfriend that as the dining room was being renovated, there was nothing available and we could go to the Starbucks down the street (we were not told that the dining room was closed even though the website advertised access). This was bad enough, but as we were leaving the hotel the next day, we saw two people eating breakfast at one of the cafe tables outside the hotel . We asked another hotel employee who told us that even though the dining room was closed they were indeed serving breakfast! Sadly the croissant and coffee were so bad that we still ended up going to a cafe around the corner(the excellent Bo).
Staff were very friendly and meant to be helpful but need to be trained. I don’t believe management was on site. The building and location are terrific, and if the service were improved, this could be a great hotel.
I stayed here a week ago and it gave me a nice and comfortable feeling of welcome.
It is an excellent hotel to stay due to the environment that the people who work there create.
I had a grate stay there and would definitely recommend to anybody searching for a fantastic night wether it's with a lover, family, or business it will be just as good as your expectations.
