- Plastic flowers at entrance will never die, even during the winter
- Staff kindly leaves extra mattresses in hallways, in case guests need one
- Barbwire-covered-windows should probably almost definitely (maybe) keep out those pesky lunatic guests
- Never dull; guests might hear gunshots
- [Ed note: We kid, of course. There's really nothing good about this hotel.]
- Hallway odors smell like a combination of chemical fire, ground pork, and North Jersey tanning salon
- Hole-y ceilings, Batman!
- Door-less bathrooms (perhaps some kind of new French fad)
It's a special kind of hotel that earns a reputation for being both disgusting AND dangerous: Within five minutes of entering La Semana, it's evident that it is both. Not only have there been reports of mentally unstable clientele and gunshots, but the check-in clerk stands behind bulletproof glass, and many rooms' windows are covered in bars and barbwire, which creates the feeling of entering a prison. The rest is downhill from there: Holes in the (barely six-foot-high) ceilings, no doors on the dirty bathrooms, exposed wires, disgustingly dirty TV remotes, furniture that looks too cheap for a tailgate party, and beds without blankets make this one of the seediest hotel experiences in New York.
