For a real expensive hotel, I was not impressed. The food in the restaurant was under cooked, the decorations minimalistic, and cleanliness suspect. I've stayed in a lot of 5-Star hotels and this was by far the worst. First the good: Roof top pool was nice and the drinks at the bar were good. The room was also nice and it was clean. Now the bad: Little things in the room like a tag still on the water hose to the toilet tank and the pump bottle of body wash not working. The doors to the elevators are brass and haven't been shined since the hotel was opened. Also, there was a conference on Wednesday night and all of the smokers went outside to lite up throwing all of their butts all over the place and leaving plenty of trash. This was still not cleaned when we left on Friday. On Thursday morning we ate breakfast in the restaurant. Everything was undercooked or real greasy (eggs, bacon, potatoes). On Friday morning we walked to Bay Towne Wharf and ate breakfast at Another Broken Egg. I ordered exactly the same breakfast as I had ordered at Hotel Effie the previous morning. The meal at the Egg was superb with everything cooked perfectly. Hotel Effie was $20. The Egg was $10.49. Save your money and get better food elsewhere.
