First thing that I like most is tge idea to reduce plastic bottle by putting water jar in each room which can refill at each floor. Wifi can use at the lobby area.Walking distance to the departmentstore.

Contrary to many other recent trip reports, we just completed a good stay at the hotel. Our room on the 10th floor was very clean, well lighted and had great water pressure. The only negative was that the Wi-Fi went down every morning between 7 & 9AM. What’s up with that? You’ll find Little Italy restaurant to be just steps...
