This is a very nice hotel. Very clean and hip looking. However, there is one design flaw that I did not like-- the shared wall between the bathroom and sleeping area is frosted glass. Although this can be very sexy if you are traveling with your spouse, it is not if you are traveling with a parent or a friend. You can see the outline of whoever is taking a shower! This really didn't bother me. It was the fact that the light, when turned on in the bathroom, shines into the sleeping area-not good at nighttime when you are trying to sleep! If you are traveling with someone who gets up at night to use the bathroom, this can be irritating. There was some noise from the construction until 9:30 at night, but after that did not hear anymore. If you want to take a nap during the day, the noise could be irritating, but at night it is quiet. In fact, I like how quiet it is here compared to midtown. Midtown is much, much more noisy, especially at night!
Overall, I enjoyed my stay and thought the hotel was very nice. Food was very good and the bar area in the lobby was hip and comfortable too. Liked the complimentary coffee/tea in the morning and juice/water in the afternoon.
