Stayed for a three night kid free getaway. My number one priority in a hotel is cleanliness and a feeling of freshness, the Dana surpassed my expectations. The design and use of solid surfaces that inherently stand up to wear and tear were perfect choices. The only noticeable wear in the room was on the edges of the black out shades, they were quite frayed. The bed, linens, pillows, were of such quality that I naturally gravitated to it, a first for me in a hotel.
My boyfriend does suffer a fear if heights, our corner king was on the 9th floor, low enough for him to be comfortable, plus low enough to be able to people watch on the street below from bed. The street noise is heavy at this level, but I am not a light sleeper. Also as others have reviewed the hallway/room sound proofing is non existent. Being in the corner room this was not a problem for us, but when standing at the elevator we could clearly hear conversations in the nearby rooms. I'm sure the guests would have been quite embarrassed if they were aware. The only flaw in our experience was as others have mentioned was the T.V. It seems that dish network must not be a good choice for reliable service in this area. Often channels lost signal or didn't match the guide. For me this was not a problem, I wasn't there to watch television, but my boyfriend was quite annoyed. Staff was apologetic, but obviously the fault was in the network.
All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. We felt welcomed and valued as a guest. I booked directly through the hotel, I had questions before my stay and management was quick and caring in their response. Also we were given the breakfast vouchers, the food was amazing and filling.
The final note is location. Three block radius to everything that we wanted and needed.
