    Great location, near union square and transport. The room was Clean and modern. The Only negative is that there is no bathroom in the room. Have to share a toilet and shower down the hall. It wasn't busy so not too much of an issue.

    We arrived around 12pm from Melbourne and were able to leave our bags (in a separate room) until our room was ready.Checkout was 11am. I found check ins in the US were either 3pm or 4pm everywhere we went!
