This is a typical hotel designed for people who talk about the vibe of a hotel rather than its comfort or pleasantness. The staff is right in line with this philosophy: nice, friendly people who don't really know how to work in a hotel. The bartender forgot about my order then got it wrong. When you walk into the room your first challenge is to find the lights because there aren't any switches near the doors. You have to go to each individual fixture and figure out how to turn it on. The bathroom doors require constant movement to gain access to the toilet or the sink. The drapes don't close all the way. I would at least expect a place that caters to undiscriminating hipsters to facilitate the charging of electronic devices but this place is no better than your usual hotel in that regard. The plugs are inconveniently placed behind the bed or by the sink. On the plus side it is clean.
