I’ll start with the pros, the front desk staff was friendly and helpful, they held our bags until a room was ready since we were pretty early for check in, room service cleaned the room every day and provided enough towels for three guest, the hotel is in a nice location near Pier 17, walkable to many food spots and the subway. Now to the cons, we was able to check in early but we went through two rooms before we landed on an ok one. The first room, sheets were not clean, hair on bathroom sink. The second room, the bed felt deflated as if someone larger had slept on it and left their mark, I turned the bed around to make things more comfortable but after going to use the bathroom I discovered their was urine and tissue in the toilet; at this point I had to call and request another room, which was better than the others but still not the greatest. This hotel is set up just to rest, the rooms are small, the bathroom door wasn’t a good choice, the double bed is just a full no queen, there is no microwave anywhere on the property so I was told, of course theirs overpriced items to buy in the store and no pool.

Wonderful stay and amazing staff made this one of my new favorite spots to stay, and in an area that is growing and has an impressive food, drink, and neighborhood scene. Definitely go to About Coffee for caffiene and snacks, and a MUST see is the beautiful and delicious Tin Building market, can literally spend hours there. Can't say enough about the lengths the staff went to to make our birthday getaway beyond special and memorable!
