I can't really say much about the location because the weather was so bad that we didn't explore much. It was located downtown across from a huge building that was being built. We had fun watching the workers on the roof. Room was great - Very nice hotel. We ate breakfast in the restaurant the day we left which was very good. Staff was very inviting and helpful.

The hotel was great for my event I attend for the weekend, location was good for that. But there was construction and busy party street with loud noise at night. Especially Friday and Saturday until 2am. The hotel provides you with white noise machine BUT they don’t tell you until you check in. They should mention on website. The service and front desk were super helpful and knowledgeable thank you Victoria. The hotel is pretty expensive for having loud noise at night. They also have hidden fees that you don’t know about until you check in. I was there with an event and the “discount” was $259/night. But almost $50 hidden fee like Texas fee all added up to $306/night. Maybe if this was a resort. Overall beautiful hotel, nice service but loud noise at night and hidden fees for night stay. It worked for the purpose of attending an event but I wouldn’t stay here because of those reasons.
