This brand of Starwood is definitely more college, dorm style casual and not a typical Hotel experience which may be a real breath of fresh air for some travelers. Lobby is casual, had a bar, comfy group seating and a pool table. The free pool table is a nice amenity and not what u normally get in a hotel stay. The rooms are odd. Not sure I would share with a business associate based on bathroom not having much privacy. Trendy low bed, big screen TV, not much of a view but ok work station with a window. If you prefer an upscale hotel, this is not it. If you are young and want casual and trendy new look on a hotel stay, this may be right up your alley!
