Very disappointed!!

Liked: The exterior of the building and the lobby.
Disliked: We felt it was definitely not worth the price. We?ve stayed at the Savoy hotel in London the Trump Plaza in New York, just to name a few and do not think the cost of the room at the Francis was anywhere near the value. The room had no warmth to it at all. It was very simple. it should of had a king size bed in it. I laid down on the bed and could not believe my eyes, I saw dust around the moldings, around the window, just everywhere. Nothing that a feather duster or a vacuum with a hose would not fix. it didn?t even have a microwave. We needed some information and directions, however there was no one at the desk. We had to e-mail twice before someone came. I will say the building and furnishings were very nice in the lobby. There was a lovely fireplace in a sitting room in the lobby but that?s where it ended. Our trip was a ten day trip. This hotel was the biggest disappointment based on the price of the other five hotels we stayed at.


Poor - 1.5 out of 5

Way over-priced

Liked: It was quiet. Parking was free. Kayla was very nice.
Disliked: Lighting was dim. Only one chair for the two of us. No phone. Difficult to contact the front desk. Had to text them. One light needed to be unplugged to turn off. Twenty minute walk to Old Port down hill then up & back to hotel. Need to be able to walk this which we could. No real amenities other than WiFi. TV was clearly dated and not real bright. Bathroom light was dim. Advertising was mid-leading.
