Very good 8,0
The stay was perfect. The only problem i had was after check out they charged my card for $250, i called to ask why they stated the carpet was burned. Once i requested can they send a picture of proof to my email because nothing was lit in that room they then said it was a misunderstanding. It made me feel they were just trying to get free money out of me

Saying that this is a nice and clean hotel would be an understatement

Poor 2,0
No housekeeping but all the loud drunks you want
Apparently at this very expensive hotel they no longer clean the rooms or give fresh towels, sheets or take out the trash. But the worst thing is they rent rooms to drunks in the middle of the night and let parties to happen in the halls and the room next to you. This is apparently what you should expect when staying here.
