Whilst my room was small, it was perfectly formed and extremely well thought out. It had absolutely everything a (business) traveller would need including free... More

This is a nice boutique hotel located in a bustling area of town. The night life nearby is... Unique! There are a few gentlemens clubs and adult stores near, but do not let this bother you! The staff is friendly and helpful! In general it is a nice, quiet place to stay!
