I stayed here two nights on a business trip. The staff were all very friendly. Rooms were immaculate. Everything was so clean! More toiletries than other hotels as well, which I greatly appreciated! The bar/restaurant attached was very cool too. The decor was unique and fun. As always, the free chocolate chip cookies are delicious!
