Location is great in the skywalk. Nice to walk to the Wells Fargo Arena, etc.
I cannot appreciate transforming a building that's listed on the National Historic Registry into a contemporary design with a European feel. Just seems so wrong to destroy its original intent.
Bathrooms are 4 x 5 feet at the most... No vanity or robe hooks. There is only 1 other mirror in the suite and there is no electrical outlet near it, making it impossible for 2 people to get ready in the bathroom at the same time.
Pillows are tiny, too...not standard size...and flat. Only 2 bath towels are provided, so I couldn't put towels under my pillow to make it bigger.
Finally, there are no drawers for clothes. A couple of inconvenient shelves are provided in a contemporary bureau with no knobs/pulls. Opening by pushing on the corner only sometimes results in the door opening. Darn frustrating!
Will stay elsewhere next time.
