Everything about the No. 8 Wired was excellent. The food was delicious, the staff was professional and friendly, and the bars were a lot of fun. There were a few live shows going on while I was staying here and they were always upbeat and attracted a good crowd. The hotel itself is in a great location with ATMs, shops and restaurants all around even though I ended up eating at the hotel most of the time. I agree with the previous post in that the decor is definitely cheeky and fun. I would most definitely stay here again!
