We stayed for two nights in this hotel. First of all, we didn't care for the decor at all...this is just a personal preference though. According to other reviews, others seemed to like it. I would describe our room as a mix of industrial/deco with dorm room like furnishings which weren't very warm and inviting to us. There really is no front desk, which is a unique characteristic but they have to go to a back room to do anything on a computer which includes taking your credit card with them....not very efficient. The staff was very friendly. They gave us dining suggestions and gave us a map in which they pointed many things out. The hotel is conveniently located by the WWII museum and a trolley stop. The biggest disappointment is the amenities...or lack thereof I should say. We had no blow dryer, clothes iron/ironing board and no coffee condiments. The wine glasses were all VERY dirty...a couple had red wine remnants. The shower curtain had pink mold stains at the bottom. When we called to request the blow dryer & iron and coffee condiments they responded very quickly to our request but the ironing board was all stained and dented and they brought more coffee pods instead of creamer and sugar. Breakfast was included with our package for both days but since the restaurant was closed for renovations it was room service instead...which really was not a big deal for us. The first morning we called around 9:30 and ordered. They said it would take 45 minutes. The food came very cold, with no salt and pepper and one of the little jars of jelly was half used. The next morning we ordered around 8:30 and they said it would only be a few minutes...we also specifically asked for salt and pepper....still didn't get any...the food was a little warmer though. We had some noisy neighbors but that's not the hotels fault. I will say the bed was very comfortable.
