THE GOOD: The hotel's staff was very efficient and nice in handling our reception to the hotel. The room was big. The ammenities in the room were very good (they were from Philosophy!), The shower head is of the kind that emulates rain showers, so bring your own shower cap.
The hotel is well located.
THE BAD: The hotel's lobby is gloomy. the decor seemed gray and black (the key word here is "seemed" because I could not tell it was so dark!). I even stumbled into the glass door on my way out of the hotel one morning. The guard was nice asking me if I was O.K. I was, I just couldn't see in the darkness.
The room was also dark. One lamp didn't work. When I turned on all the lamps available, I still had a hard time finding my things in the room. All the darkness made me feel like I was sick or something. I really don't get the concept of darkness is hip. Maybe it is to make you feel like you're staying in a nice night club? I really don't know. Darkness is not practical when you're traveling on business.
The continental breakfast is ridiculously priced. You're better off going to a Bagel Express a half block away, and get yourself a real breakfast.
The hotel is a bit noisy. You can hear traffic and also the people walking in the hall way. So bring a couple of ear plugs along, just in case.
However, I do recommend this place and I would stay there again.
