Spent a night at The Joule and it's a very pleasant hotel to visit. If you don't need to be in Downtown, however, it wouldn't be my first choice. It's a bit on the dark side, rooms are small [very] but very chic. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly and I only have good things to say about them. I got confused by the light switches and that kind of stuff, but it was a nice experience. Bed was very cool. Round and interesting lighting. I needed it de-feathered and it took room service no more than 5 minutes to show up and do the job right. Not every hotel acts so quickly and many don't know how to do it.
Only downside to this hotel is lack of parking. You must use valet which isn't cheap.
I'd give it 5 stars but I feel that 5 needs to be a stupendous experience. This was not. It was a great experience but on the pricey side.
