Sad Experience

The overall experience was dissapointing... The room was dark and awful, we supposedly received an upgrade (beacause of my Expedia member level) because I asked... they did not offer it (and I wrote to let them know our level few weeks ago). I cannot tell the difference in room, ours was old and sad. The view was the parking lot of Shutters Hotel o some hotel in front (BTW the pictures online let you think that you have sea view, which I beleive only happens in the last floor, we where in 4th floor) I wrote more than a month ago to let them know we where celebrating a 10 year anniversary and nothing.. absolutly nothing happened... We did not received any special detail (and the detail does not have to be material or expensive... just thoughtful). I even told them the exact date and not even a chocolate in the room... We spent the first 4 days of our LA trip downtown and the level of service and experience received was from another world... The front desk staff did not even said good morning when we passed the area in the morning... zero service or nothing to make our stay memorable. The area established for "breakfast" was dull and we did not even felt attracted to the food and drinks that where available..We won't come back for sure... Sad.. we had expectations form what I saw online. We thought about changing hotels when we knew you where renovating but decided to give you the opportunity thinking that you where going the extra mile to pamper your guests. I guess we made a bad decision.

The entire hotel is under construction. The pool and restaurant are not open. The internet doesn’t work. There’s no tea, coffee, glasses or mini bar in the room. For something posing as a luxury hotel, they should really be offering highly discounted rooms for staying here, so you don’t feel tricked. I asked reception if there was someone I could complain to and they told me to write a Trip Advisor review, so here I am...
