This hotel is a great value! Its located near the beach, at the south end of State Street, and you can walk to everything. The furnishings are very cool, a sort of "comfortable modern" vibe, and the staff is extremely friendly. Our room was a Compact King with a nice patio with two armchairs and small tables. I loved the different types of succulents planted out on the patio.
We both had a good nights sleep. The bed was very comfortable and the duvet was nice and thick. No crummy, skimpy duvet here! I am a light sleeper and was concerned about noise from the nearby Amtrak train station. Although we were on the train side of the hotel we were not bothered - two trains went by in the afternoon and one train went by maybe at 8am-ish (it didn't really wake me up). From inside the room, you could hear the trains bell a little bit but it was kind of like hearing the foghorns in San Francisco.
The bathroom is a bit odd. You do have to swing a glass door out to create the space for the shower. Not a luxurious or sexy shower experience. But its an efficient use of space.
Other bits... The lighting in the room is good. Everything was sparkling clean. I liked having access to free, fast wi-fi. And the room was indeed compact, but comfortable for two tall people. The restaurant is fantastic as well!
