musty, smoky, filthy old place.and they don't care

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 29, 2010

Billed as a 1920's, remodeled jewel of a luxury hotel, this place is just a pig in lipstick. I asked for and recieved one of the remodeled rooms; the most expensive one they had and when we got to the room, steam heat, NO AC, half the windows had no screens, and there must have been over 10 coats of paint on the thick old plaster walls and wood? trim.
Room was filthy with sex stains on the decorative bed pillows, hairs all over the bed and dead bugs everywhere. Remodeled room furniture was ok..but less than expected from luxury hotel.
Billed as non-smoking throughout yet the halls, and the rooms smell strongly of cigerette smoke; could not get away from the smell no matter where we went.
There were NO persons employed to help with luggage or anything else and the only employee we spotted was the front desk person (must say that he tried ..but what can he do?).
Apparently this place is over half filled with appartments that are intermixed with the hotel rooms and the tenents are mostly lower income, lower class (though cheerful for the most part) people who could give a darned less whether you hear their arguments, or smell their smoke.
Don't bother to complain or call the owner or manager as, though the number is available, they don't answer and the voicemail box is full all the time.
Oh, they have free breakfast, but..are you ready for this, when we got down there at 9:30 am, there were three boxes of cerial, two english muffins, no coffee, no milk left. There was a hot waffle iron there, and batter in the mini fridge; but you had to make it yourself if you wanted it and they were out of butter and syrup.
Oh..and the bed was as hard as a rock and felt like sleeping on sandpaper as they had some way-long-ago-worn-out 1/2" matress pad under the sheets that was actually so old that foam nubs were hard as rocks.
There were some good things about the astor;
1) the grandfather clock in the lobby is a treasure of victorian style and bongs nicely
2) parking was $5 a night

No matter what price you get this for, resist..don't do it..motel 6 is a better room with more amenities..and that is saying something.

Unique Quality: $5 parking

Directions: college campus atmosphere
