this hotel was beautiful, very modern and pleasing to the eye in most ways. The hotel room was different from most hotels due to the fact it was so light, bright, and white...combined with the modern decor and its a winner. If you need a cool and pretty place to stay at, and the most important feature is being downtown, then this is the hotel for you. But make sure to read the cons before you decide to book there ;)
the downtown location
the modern decor
the clean and well maintained rooms and building
the bathroom shower with the 6-8 shower heads
beds were comfortable and sleeping ideal
they have valet services, which was very nice since it was middle of winter (but they don't mention its a 25-30 dollar/day charge, so that plus tipping was a $50/day service that was unknown)
they have elevators that stop at the 4th floor then you have to get out walk around the building ( as you go past the bar...Im assuming they did this on purpose to increase traffic to bar) then get on another set of elevators to get to your room...by the 10th time you must do it...its gets old
I also felt for this price range there should have been some type of pool, hot tub, sauna ...something. There is none.
also esp. on weekend nights be prepared to be woken up by people on the streets yelling and cars honking. I had to get some sleep on a Saturday night...and it was very hard, since the noise woke me up every hour at least ( note I am NOT a light sleeper so if it woke me up...then it will wake anyone up) my suggestion, bring your own ear plugs and set your phone on a sleep program with noise canceling .
overall, for location alone I was glad I stayed here and had a good experience ;)
