Top things at this hotel-- 1) PRIME location (can't say enough about how conveniently located it is) and 2) amazing, friendly service!!!!
My husband found a deal on Expedia about a month ago for about $135/night which is great. Got here no problem... today!! :) Immediately welcomed in by Andy -- I guess you would call him the bellhop, but he's so much more than that..... Beyond nice, passionate and enthusiastic about the hotel and the city. Started it off so well!! Then I worked with Christina at the front desk, told her last minute that it was our anniversary on the 9th and I can't believe what she immediately did for us-- changed our hotel room to top floor, gave us two breakfast vouchers and had champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries sent to our room.... What????? Sooo nice!!! She even called to make sure everything was great in the room.
My only critique of he hotel is its decor. It's absolutely fine, clean and acceptable, but not really modern. It's a very standard hotel look, nothing botique-y or trendy like a W Hotel for instance. But can't really complain otherwise!!!
Having a great time!!
