0.93km from Joe Coffee(West Village)Stayed here multiple times over years. Most recent departure was as covid ramped up. Had just extended reservation from a long stay. Well known to management. They called me down to recheck in but when I got to lobby manager admitted tricking me to get me out of room: "actually we're closing down and didn't want to tell you that while you were in room." Ah, because they thought I was going to squat/refuse to leave? Nice. Unfortunately we'd made mistake of overlooking an extremely disturbing event a few weeks prior. It involved local known drug dealers hacking our phone from the next room (apparently for hours)--deleting/adding files and video recording screen of our phone. This was not a random crime. Wouldn't you know it? The staff when asked said there were no registered guests in that room--no way anyone squatted there. Despite presence of cameras everywhere, staff refused to check/allow access to videos and said they preferred being reported to the (real) police. Done! Lastly, during end of another (solo) 2-month stay, awaiting confirmation of final night's rate, management Pulled me out of my room around 1 pm until rate was confirmed and room paid for. I was ill at the time (winter) and management had me sit with a fever in the lobby, coughing and wheezing up a storm, for an hour before management confirmed the rate I'd claimed earlier in the day. This was a $5 discrepancy the front desk was confirming. They even refused to let me return to my room just to get pain medication and insisted on having a bellhop escort me to my room and back. After accepting 1000s of $$$ in prepaid hotel fees, this is how they treated a guest on his last day, over a $5 question on the daily rate. Also, there were a lot of errors and quirks that just don't happen other places. Too many times I'd call my one friend from my room travelking in town and BOOM! suddenly there'd be a bellhop at my door telling me there was an urgent matter at the front desk (grumpy false claims I hadn't paid incidentals deposit upon check-in; misplaced paperwork; constantly demagnetized room keys; AND bizarre hassles whence staff would claim not to know how to set phone so I could make outgoing local calls). It's also in a remote location on a pollution-choked highway. Don't bother, esp as they allow guests to become crime victims and at best refuse to help. I dunno, it's kind of how a shady place would treat a guest maligned falsely behind his back as some kind of vice squad guy?? Don't overlook any unacceptable annoyances--it just emboldens them. Lots of under the cove intrigue hwre. Why they'd encourage police involvement in a crime investigation instead of settling their naughty mistakes quietly should be a red flag to many! "When a hotel shows who they are--believe them!"
