Cool hotel, nicely styled with a coffee shop, lounge area, outdoor patio and rooftop bar/lounge. Check in was easy and friendly. The room was very small, but adequate (we shared a small studio for 4 years, so this was no big deal). Room was tech-oriented with lighting, blinds, etc, controlled by a tablet in the room, which was cool. We ran into a lady in the elevator who "hated" the hotel because she couldn't figure out how anything worked, so it's not for everyone. Hotel is very centrally located - very easy to get anywhere you want to go from here. We enjoyed sitting up on the rooftop bar with a drink, and liked our breakfast in the coffee shop. I got one excellent Americano in the morning and one terrible one in the evening, so that evened out.
The only other negatives were 1) the creepy wake up call that was controlled by the tablet and delivered via a TV screen on the wall – we forgot we had set it and it freaked us out in the morning and 2) there is a design issue with the arrangement of the bed - it is installed against the window and there is a crack between the bed and window sill just wide enough for an iPhone to fall through - which of course it did, as I reached to turn off my alarm in the morning. So, for a good 15 minutes my alarm went off as we tried to figure out how to completely disassemble the bed to retrieve the phone. This included removing all of the bedding and mattress, then lifting a panel from under the mattress and reaching with a high heeled shoe to get the phone back within reach. So that was an unpleasant start to the morning.
Still, we really liked the hotel and would return if in the area.
