Make sure that you are getting one of the "regular" sized rooms that are shown and advertised. We some how came up with the only "smaller" room. It was so crowded and freezing the whole time we where there. If you closed the bedroom door or bathroom there was frost that built up on the inside of the window. The... More

The "hotel" is actually the 3rd floor of a renovated building on Montana Avenue - a trendy street renovated and now occupied by shops, eating establishment, and nighclubs. The 2nd floor is occupied by businesses renting rooms for offices. And then there is the 1st floor. Q Cuisine is a stylish restaurant offering a variety of items but I remember... More

Each of the 8 rooms is decorated with a "modern" flair and has a kitchenette and a separate bedroom and beautifully tiled... More
