Bathtub and shower were obviously not cleaned and had clumps of hair. Staff was slow and unprofessional. Valet staff was inappropriate. Property is poorly maintained. Ridiculous hotel policies and extra fees. Won’t recommend this place or stay again. The only good thing is the location.

Booked a one night stay for personal reasons. The area is a great, trendy location full of restaurants. Beware of the homeless population at night, as there are many people sleeping on the street at night time gets closer. Loved the fact that my room didnt have carpet. Comfortable bedding, full sized ironing board, iron, microwave, mini fridge, and coffee maker.
