I stayed 2 nights in this hotel in mid June 2012. It is definetly cool and has a good bar downstairs. They have an outdoor area with couches, so the lobby is more like a lounge/bar than a lobby. If you're into the modern scene, it's pretty cool. I wouldn't suggest it to my grandmother, however. The elevators have blue lights and the hallways have funky wallpaper. My boyfriend and I are 25 and 26 and thought it was really funky and fun. Under all of it, however, its just a regular medium budget hotel. If it's the right price and place, stay there, but don't go out of your way just to stay.
The rooms are clean, the shower is pretty neat (has a rain shower head!) and the beds were fine. I did not have any of the previous mentioned issues with the bed being to hard or anything like that. It was a firm bed, but not uncomfortable at alll. The room has a pretty hip feel to it and was a nice size.
My main complaint, however, is that for a hotel trying so hard to be nicer than it is, they are pretty stingy. They dont have an ice machine, you have to call the front desk and you get a baggy the size of your hand. This is obviously not that important haha, I just found it really strange. They have excessively expensive snacks and breakfast downstairs, but no real place to eat them. I'd definetly suggest eating elsewhere.
All in all, cool hotel thats worth a stay. Youll get a good nights sleep in a clean room, a nice shower and some pretty cool pictures!
