Verified Reviews of Empress Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"The Empress Hotel is horrible, rat droppings in the room!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The hotel was so bad, three couples are the cost and found other hotels. There were rat dropping on The floor, bathrooms were not usable, there was not central air or heat, etc. The rest of us made the best of it. A person in my group came late. I asked that she be given one of the rooms that others in my group left and so she would not have to share a bed with her cousin because it and s only one full size bed in each room. They then told me that they had resold my rooms and that she couldn't get a room to herself. I had to inform them that the rooms were mine until check out Friday. They pretended to not comprehend that. After about a half hour or so of discussion, they finally gave her the room. We checked out Saturday. We are still on the cruise ship, there were some technical difficulties and we are arriving 12 hours late and leaving the ship late tonight and tomorrow morning.
