It was really great to walk into a hotel room and see something visually appealing and unique as opposed to the usual calico bedspread and tacky floral wall paper. The room I booked was huge and had a big wraparound couch, a cool recycled wood table and coffee table, king bed, big LCD TV, desk, refrigerator, etc. There has been much care taken with the little comforts like the great linens, awesome squishy shredded latex pillows, Malin and Goetz shampoo, an assortment of cool magazines, etc. I definitely got the feeling that this is still a work in progress and will continue to improve as the room looked great but the walls were totally bare, the turntable had no needle, and some amenities that are expected at this price point were missing. But I expect these kinks will be worked out. The staff I dealt with were attentive and friendly, and the lobby couches were always packed with people which gave the place a lively air. The hotel is centrally located and really handy to shopping, public transport, etc. Light sleepers may want to pack earplugs because garbage trucks rattle around in the wee hours, and there is a noisy club across the way. The coffee shop and restaurant on either sides of the lobby are both flat out wonderful.
