I have to say that this hotel was one of my least favorites out of all the hotels my husband and I have visited. With this hotel being modeled after the Waldorf Astoria, I really expected more.
I can’t even begin to express the level shock I felt when entering the hotel room. Not only was it miniscule but it looked cheap and run down.
The closet was almost non-existent and the bathroom looked like it belonged in a 1 star motel. The toilet had a push lever like the kind you see at a rest stop! And there was absolutely no counter space for us to place our toiletries. Frankly, you could get a better hotel room at the Holiday Inn.
The lobby and public spaces were absolutely gorgeous and had a glamourous, old Hollywood type of feel. I suppose these areas were paid the most attention when designing the hotel to imitate the Waldorf Astoria as they truly were exceptional. But what I find more important in a hotel is that it have well-appointed and comfortable guest rooms which is what the guest is actually paying for. I have no interest in staying somewhere that has highly inferior guest rooms, no matter how exceptional the public spaces are.
