No-frills hotel (yes they have wi-fi and tv) in a great location. Beds were comfy and the room was clean. The two bed/ two bath room was perfect for two friends traveling together and the nightly rate was very reasonable. The room was large (necessarily since the two beds are 1K, 1Q). The shower in one of the two baths had NO water pressure, but the other shower was fine. The room also had a refrigerator and Keurig coffee maker.The coffee pods provided with the coffee maker were both decaf, but a thoughtful "comes in a creamer-like container for portion control" Black Coffee Shot of caffeine was provided.
We did not know breakfast was included, and that was convenient, provided in a breakfast room on the same floor as our room (10th). The breakfast was pretty bad, but you could get mediocre coffee and Yoplait, so it was better than nothing.
The lobby is a great space and it is wonderful that this building is being re-purposed in part as a hotel.
The minimal staff is very pleasant.
It helps if you have a sense of humor, since there is a bit of quirkiness here. No vacancy for stuffed shirts.
