Many are many in New York's bars and clubs that have poorly dressed clothes that bouncers (bouncers) are dirty and that have discriminatory "selective doors" that refuse to enter male-only groups. In short, despite reviews that the hotel did not even stay overnight, it sometimes has the wrong impression that "Is there a problem with hotel services and rates due to the small number of stars?"

Elements of emphasis on people differ so it may be difficult to judge by just "one star".

It is also important whether the hotel accommodation fee that you stay is worth the amount, but sometimes a highly rated review is "Excessive expectationThere are times when it will let you have.
