We stayed at the Carl while we visited a friend just a short walk away. We had the largest room available but it was very reasonable at $115. We started out in a smaller room and asked to be moved. The staff was very accommodating and even moved our luggage to the new room while we were out. The room was spacious and clean and the refrigerator and microwave were very handy. The train was noisy but we got used to it. The location is terrific with shops and restaurants nearby and we (two women) felt completely comfortable walking around the neighborhood. I would definitely stay again, you can't beat the price for a nice, clean room in a big city.
