The good, the bad, the ambivalent
-The air conditioning problem was fixed by the time I stayed there (mid March).
- I had an issue with the internet one night and the technician sent to resolve the issue was prompt and very competent.
-There was no issue with room cleanliness as they unnervingly stopped by at least three times a day to clean the room.
-This place was very secure, I served four years on a US military base and let me tell you this place was better guarded:
- The guards had AKs with real bullets (not sure how many) plus body armor, posted in multiple teams along the entry routes and hotel entrance
- Walled off from the outside
- Metal detectors for people and bags coming in (though no one really seemed to be paying attention to the monitors or alarms bells)
- While the food tasted good, I got diarrhea every morning from the breakfast buffet, eventually coming down with a milder case gastroenteritis from an undercooked hamburger a the pool side restaurant. (mild considering the fact that I did not die)
- Be nice and patient to the staff at the front desks and they will eventually do their job, be combative and it only prolongs the pain of dealing with the incompetent ones.
- Despite the possible theft risk posed by a structure on the outside of the rooms that could seemingly allow someone to gain entry, not a single instance of thievery happened while was there.
-There was a guard on each floor, dutifuly keeping the prostitutes from the first floor from badgering all the guests in their rooms.
My coworkers who frequently traveled to Abuja were also relieved that we stayed here and not the Sheraton, as for myself I would stay there again as I understand the Sheraton is less secure, this is Africa afterall and one must have priorities...
