Terrible Place/Do not book

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 4, 2009

This is not a hotel. When you arrive at the Christopher, there is no one there to welcome you with a similing face. There is just a door and a passcode lock on it. There is a message on the door. It tells the guest to call a particular number to get your passcode first to enter the building and second to access your own room.

I booked the Christopher through Hotels.com. I arrived the Hotel Thursday night at 10.45. As suggested in the message posted on the door, I called in to get my access code. I waited at the door outside for almost an hour for someone to answer my call. I even called their so-called "emergency" line. But no one answered. While patiently waiting on the line for someone to answer, I saw other guests punching in their access codes. They told me that they also had to wait a long time on the phone. So recommended me to be patient. About 12 AM I gave up and went out to find another hotel to spend the night.

Now imagine a hotel which you booked and paid in advance, but when you arrive there after a long flight in a dark and cold night, there is no one to let you into your room. And you have to walk with your luggages around the city to find another place to sleep. This is the Christopher experience. Do not be stupid, do not waste your money on this hotel. You deserve way better than this.

So for me it was a TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE....
