Bait and switch, beware
This hotel runs a bait and switch. I  prepayed for a room using for what seemed like a good deal for a room that looked really nice in the pictures. After travelling 24 hrs, the receptionists here tell me I've booked a basic room that is really old, not comfortable at all, and with no view, but for USD 26 per night I could upgrade to a nicer room with a great view and breakfast. It wasn't just me they were doing this too, they advertise this upgrade deal digitally right  on the front desk. So I asked the receptionists to show me the two rooms. Sure enough, the first room was pretty dingy, small, decorated with old furniture, old carpet, tight spacing. The upgrade room was totally modern, large, marble countertop in the bathroom, mini bar, auto drapes, new carpet, etc. I accepted the deal, but really felt like I should have been shown accurate pictures of the room I was booking, and I hadn't read about this in the TA reviews. Past the sleazy bait and switch...yes, the lobby is nice, the gym and pool are amazing, breakfast is very good, and wifi can be good at times, non existent at others. Mine went completely out on the 2nd night of my 4 night stay and was not restored by the front desk. The location is good for business or shopping at the big malls, metro is across the street. Pure tourists might want to stay closer to the action, but it's close if you can handle the metro.

Pleasant, ideally located hotel
Hotel Equatorial is ideally suited being close to a subway station. It is a very quiet, well appointed hotel with pleasant and helpful staff.
