The interior decor was amazing and quirky, the room was larger than average and the beds very comfortable. The staff was efficient and friendly, the elevator doors in particular were stunning!

Comforter was stained and rooms are a bit outdated. Elevators get backed up and slow. One staff member was rude and having a bad day. Otherwise relatively quiet room and great location - could not be better walking distance to restaurants, bars, sights

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
This hotel is really hit and miss. On the positive side, the bed was very comfortable (despite smaller than average pillows - like an odd size) and the bath was also quite nice, as were the robes, and the bathroom had some nice decor/ wallpaper. Lobby and elevators had a cool vibe/ decor. However, the room itself was very small and depressing. Fit the bed and that was about it, no light, towels were like Holiday Inn towels, nothing about the room that made it feel different from any utterly fungible business hotel. The size of the room would not have been an issue if it had any of the slight uniqueness of the bathroom or elevator. As is, we couldn’t wait to leave the room. Also small things, like the makeup mirror in bathroom was hanging off a bit and under the TV there clearly used to be something else there and you could see the marks on the wall.
