Stayed there the weekend of 11/4. The bad reviews capture the problems. It’s nice enough, but the housekeeping is awful. Short on toilet paper and coffee, every day. Nice location. Parking is a hassle. Limited “restaurant “ and bar.

Very clean room. Bright, colorful, nice art. Great staff. Pretty neat theming throughout, I liked the little people on the bathroom walls. Easily found street parking. I stole the do not disturb sign, which is a little pennant. Highly recommended.

Concept is fine. Execution is poor. Not up to high hospitality standards. It's run like a hotel run by real estate people who don't really get what hospitality means. They're not ready for prime time. Or prime prices. There are many other hospitality options close...More
