Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, amenities
Hi! I was originally very excited to stay at the shangri la since I love their rooftop and they have a really good reputation. When I arrived at my room which was ocean view ... the inside was very basic and the elevators were not well kept. Also , there was a menu from room service filled out by a previous guest on 5.17.2020... almost one month ago !! To which it made me wonder about the cleanliness of the room . The front desk manager was very kind and offered an upgrade to which I didn’t accept since it was a hassle. I did recommend to get a complimentary drink for me and my fiance, to which she said she couldn’t do, which it threw me off since it was just a little token for their big mistake . Dong know , will definitely won’t be staying here and I wouldn’t recommend it to anybody. Mind you the room was 375 dollars, for one night... not worth it at all !

Worst hotel experience in my life
Horrible stay. Hotel is filthy dirty. Found hair in the shower, cutting board with leftover food in the kitchen, and hair in the bed. First suite we got in, the AC was not working in the living room. They moved us to another one, but turns out AC wasnt working in the bedroom. To top it off, they call me at 12 telling me to check out at 12:30 or they charge me half a full rate. I only asked to check out at 1:00pm. The answer was: you can if you want, but we’ll still charge you, in the rudest tone you can immagine. As if this wasnt enough, they sent security to the room, again, super rude, to tell me its checkout time. One of the most terrible hotel stays in my life. Super filthy hotel (hallways full of cigarette buds too), very dirty rooms, and rude service. DO NOT STAY there
