Le Pavillon Hotel Review

One of the most regally sumptuous hotels in town, Le Pavillon offers up romantic spaces and attentive service. Magnificent chandeliers adorn the European-style lobby of this historic 1907 hotel, and a handsome collection of artwork lines the corridors; the marble railing in the clubby Gallery Lounge is originally from the Grand Hotel in Paris. Guest rooms have high ceilings and identical traditional decor; suites are particularly luxurious. The elegant Crystal Room has a huge weekday soup, salad, and pasta lunch buffet, as well as à la carte service. The opulent hotel lounge has 30-foot ceilings, marble columns, and a magnificent mahogany bar. It's great for an afternoon cocktail.

    Horrible Hotel

    The Le Pavillon Hotel is in terrible condition, the staff is obnoxious and the service is horrible. A noxious odor resembling mold, permeates throughout the hotel. The Le Pavillon Hotel is in need of major renovation.

    I had a king room, when I stayed at the hotel. The furniture in my room was old and dusty. The bed linens were damp and yellow from years of use. The paint was chipping of the ceilings and walls in the main room. The carpet flooring was filthy and stained. The wallpaper was pealing of the walls in the bathroom. The white tile flooring in the bathroom was cracked and black from dirt.

    There is no privacy lock on the entry door to the room. The room does not boast a “Do Not Disturb” sign. Housekeeping staff enters the room as they wish.

    The noise level at the Le Pavillon Hotel is extreme. The walls appeared to be paper thin. I heard every sound and word spoken by guests in the adjacent rooms. The Le Pavillon Hotel is situated on a busy street. My room was located on the sixth floor of the hotel and I still heard all of the street noise.
