A woman from Texas got quite a surprise when she accidentally checked into the Out NYC, a gay hotel in New York City.
“Elise K.” is a Yelper who lives in Austin, Texas. According to her Yelp profile, she loves “travel, art, beauty, architecture, design, jewelry, decor, music, performing, reading, dance, LIFE.” Her favorite movie is 1987’s The Last Emperor, and her favorite meal on earth is sushi.
“First off,” Elise begins, “it would help to know in advance that this is a gay hotel.”
“They put me in a room where I was up till 4am due to a club that is next to the south part of the hotel,” she continues. “4am!!!!”
“Music was blasting, pulsating and shaking the room literally. No one at the front desk informed me I’d be woken up and disturbed like that.”
She goes on to write: “Apparently the construction of this place sucks as you can even hear people screaming while making love at all hours of the morning.”
Sounds like a fun place to us. Elise, however, did not appreciate the party atmosphere and asked for a discount.
“They offered to give me 30% off my room,” she writes. “WTF?”
She was also not pleased by the hotel’s lack of shower caps or the “manly” scent of the complimentary bath products.
“They don’t have shower caps,” she writes, “apparently men don’t use them but this woman does. The lotion is really not unisex it has a manly type of scent that is very strong. So the amenities are not female friendly. ”
In her review, Elise acknowledges that the rooms are “cool”, the beds are “comfy,” and the spa and jacuzzi are “amazing,” but she will not be frequenting the hotel again, writing: “I will not return here.”
Elise may not be returning to the hotel, but we know where we’ll be staying the next time we visit the Big Apple.
