1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Room comfort
Not a great experience
The first 2 nights there were awful, the "entertainment" that was supposed to be included was faulty and did not work both nights. I had to call and chat with their customer service and wait for a representative to come out after 10pm to fix it. Come to find out, the rep knew this would be a problem since Sonder will not update their WIFI router to allow for more bandwidth. They were hard to communicate with, offered me a tiny refund but I have yet to see any confirmation of that - not sure if it actually even a valid refund they offered... The bed was super soft and felt like it would collapse everytime we got in it, the walls were super thin - we could hear the room next to us and everyone screaming down the hallway, and the pool was not cleaned and not usable.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness
This property was an absolute hot mess. I arrived and entered my room, only to realize that the bed was completely destroyed- as in it was broken between the frame and the headboard and part of the mattress was resting on the floor. There were dirty linens and trash in the room. It looked like housekeeping had come in to clean, realized the bed was broken, then just stopped what they were doing and walked out. So, since the property is not staffed, I texted the help line to explain my problem. The first customer service rep that I dealt with tried to be helpful, but after and hour of chatting with her and trying to come up with an alternative, I was told that there were no other rooms available for me at that property, that the nearest Sonder property they could move me to was miles away (I was staying in the French Quarter and moving miles away was not what I wanted), and that if I wanted anything to be changed that I would have to call Expedia personally and chat with them. She also shared with me that the room I was booked in was supposed to be unavailable and said "I do see a note from my team about the bed, I'm really not too sure why Expedia let you book here as this space was on hold". I had made my reservations 6 weeks before I checked in, so that excuse seems ridiculous to me. At no point in time did ANYONE at either Sonder or Expedia get in touch with me to tell me that the room that I had booked was no longer available. I ended up having to book another hotel.
