Each time I walk through their doors I can't stop smiling. The vibe is sophisticated, whimsical and urban. The staff are friendly and welcoming. I've seen two of the art exhibitions over the last few years and they were thought-provoking and beautiful. I would love to work here and be surrounded by it all the time! Fastest check-in, check-out and... More

It was exactly what I expected, warm, welcoming staff and service, a great room (the bed is soft, perfect for me but some might like a firmer mattress), wonderful bathroom and larger than average fitness center. Every single staff member was focused on our comfort. Try it!!! You will not be disappointed.

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and huge, especially considering we only paid $150 for it. The products in the rooms are awesome (Malin + Goetz). Was there for business and would 100% stay there again for business or pleasure.

This hotel is perfect for it's location next to the modern art museum. From the laid back dress of reception staff, to the art in the lobby and the unusual decor in the room (unless ears and noses in the bathroom tiles are your idea of normal), the hotel is definitely different-but in a good way. We thoroughly enjoyed all... More

Driving through on a cross country road trip, the only downfall was I was only there for 1 night. Great hotel in a prime location. Staff was great and bathroom was pretty huge for a hotel bathroom.The hotel is in the heart of downtown and around bars, so at night it did get a little loud. I was still able... More
