Stayed here for two nights for business. We were a small group and the hotel was super attentive to our comfort and needs. I usually would not review a business stay since they are usually at chain hotels. However, I would easily come back to the Hotel Ignacio for a personal stay.
Super contemporary style throughout, art work, sculpture. The hotel itself is attached the the (free) Moto Museum, one man's collection of about 50 vintage bikes from all over. Food in the Triumph Grill was excellent, a colleague had risotto with crab and shrimp, I had turkey and brie with granny smith apples (this on the lunch menu).
In the room, the bed was so comforable. One of the best things was that the heating/air conditioning unit (yes, i needed heat one night, a/c the next!), was steady through the whole night! No shutting off and turning on! This is huge, usually I am awakened hourly by the heat or a/c unit. Room darkening shades made it easy to sleep and I think the windows must be double paned because I didn't hear a thing at night and my room faced the street.
Spacious bathroom with lots of shelf space, free standing hair dryer. Most relaxing rain shower. I personally prefer a bath tub and more water pressure, but I have no complaints about the rain shower. I didn't try the high tech phone or use the wi-fi so can't comment. No fridge or coffee maker, but you can get coffee anytime downstairs in the lobby or bar area. In room safe great if you bring a laptop and I used it for my Nook.
All of the staff I interacted with were super friendly and made sure our group was comfortable, as I was leaving I heard the woman from the front desk showing the same care for guests who were there for a wedding (what a great place that would be to have an intimate wedding/reception!
A very pleasant stay.
