I have been wanting to stay here for years. I finally made a weekend trip to enjoy this place to escape the NYC winter. I booked a room and upon arriving the category of room I booked was all taken. So, I got placed in the auxiliary tower because the management didn't want to upgrade me because the rate I paid was too low to be worth making happy. I completely regret ever looking forward to visiting this hotel. Now tomorrow I get to shlup all the way across the compound in order to get back and forth to the pools. And I'm not really staying at the Fountainebleau. I'm staying at the conference center wing. Read less
