Reviewing The Radley Hotel, ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Newest Hot Spot With A Dark Past
Finding the perfect hotel can be a difficult task. You don't want to break the bank, but you also don't want to find yourself mattress-deep in bed bugs upon check-in. (I got chills just thinking about it.) So when it was revealed that one of the changes coming to Pretty Little Liars Season 6B would be that Radley Sanitarium was now transformed into a lavish hotel, I was immediately intrigued. What will the hotel look like? Will it be a classy establishment or give off some serious Bates Motel vibes? Will there be any hidden Easter eggs from its glory days as a mental institution that diehard fans will be able to spot? The possibilities were endless. However, the one major question that weighed heavily on my mind was: what kind of reviews would The Radley Hotel have?
Radley as a sanitarium proved to be the stuff of nightmares for our beloved Liars, but Radley as a hotel may prove to be much, much different. (Or at least I hope so, if they want their Yelp ratings to fair well.) So in honor of this massive makeover attempt, I've taken the liberty of concocting a few possible Radley reviews that I imagine visitors would write upon staying there. You've come a long way, baby. Let's celebrate!
The service is excellent and you'll sleep like a baby, the mattresses are that comfortable. However, I did find it a bit weird that the doors all locked from the inside out, so if you're planning this as your honeymoon destination be prepared for some potentially awkward run-ins with the maid service. Apart from that, everything was great! I'd definitely make a return visit.
They offered up a great selection of amenities that came free with the price of the room, ranging from an extra set of towels to full-on spa services. But I have to admit it was a little disturbing to see group therapy as one of the possible treatments. I'm hoping that was some sort of weird joke, right? I mean, I don't need to know the other guests that well...
Note to management: It would be a lot easier for guests to enjoy view from their rooms if there weren't bars permanently attached to the windows. Seriously, what's up with that? Your prices are decent, but it really messed with my Instagram game. #thanksfornothing
Call me crazy, but I'm pretty sure those treats that were left on my pillow were some sort of prescription drug and not Tic Tacs like I originally thought. I accidentally ended up taking a five-hour nap and missed my dinner reservation. Am I more rested than I've ever been? Yes, but still. A little warning on the package would've been nice.
Everything was fine and the price was right, but what was up with all those weird drawings? They gave me the creeps and honestly made it a little hard for me to fall asleep.
OMG, I loved their bathtubs. I wonder where they ordered them from. There's probably a really unique story to their history. Hit me back if you know any deets!
Thank you for staying at The Radley Hotel. We hope to see you again!
