We booked this "Boutique Hotel" as a 3 star on Hotwire. Really it is a slightly upscaled YWCA (really, sign is on the building). Many of the floors are still residential hotel and you need to insert your key to even get to your floor on the elevator-presumably because of security concerns. The front desk (staffed by the manager!) was incredibly rude. Charged $50 to my credit card to hold for "incidentals" without asking first. When questioned, response was "all hotels do that"...then sent us to dark, tiny room with 2 twin beds (we were obviously a married couple). Return to front desk, sent to brighter, still very small, room with queen bed. Could not imagine what "incidentals" in this extremely basic room would add up to $50, as there was nothing to use up or buy. They do have free internet, which I used to contact Hotwire, who was very helpful, gave an instant full refund and allowed us to book a much better, slightly more expensive hotel nearby. Not boutique, not 3 star--very poor quality for price, stay away!
