The Gansevoort Miami Beach underwent some managerial woes nearly two years ago and it looks like the scuffle has started to affect the hotel rooms.

A HotelChatter reader sent us this note along with the following photos about the sad state of the rooms, particularly room 536. They write:

I just got back from the Gansevoort in Miami Beach. After some research, I found your article which may explain why our rooms were in such sad shape. While the public areas of the hotel are beautiful, the room seemed to be one of the forgotten ones. The balcony was pretty shoddy looking (see photos), a handle to the shower controls was constantly falling off. One of the electrical sockets didn't work. The phone was broken, and the coffee maker didn't work. There's more, but no need to go any further.

We're in shock. This doesn't look like the hotel room that we once saw. Nor does it look like it's worth $445, which is what the room rates are looking like these days.

Our reader said that they called housekeeping who told them the engineering department would be notified but then no one ever showed up to address any of the issues. Also, the large, main pool at the hotel was closed although the rooftop one was open.

And making matters worse, the room overlooked the loading dock and trash area (facing 24th Street). Yup, you guessed it each morning at 8:15am, the dumpster was banging around, "almost as if they were performing work on it" our tipster said. Uggggh.

We're not quite sure if the hotel is undergoing some renos (we hope so!) but things definitely seem to be amiss here. We'll keep you updated on what's going on but until then--Modern Honolulu: Pay attention.
