What a terrible ending to what could have been a good night. I arrived yesterday evening to say hello to friends who had asked me to come check out the space of the lounge. I host events and am always looking for new spaces. Unfortunately I could never do business with an establishment that hires the most unprofessional security team. A team led by extremely aggressive men/bullies. As I was waiting off to the side of the entrance for my driver to pull around the corner in the hotel lobby, I was asked to step outside. I explained to the man that my car was pulling up in less than a minute and that I felt safer being inside the hotel as I had extremely expensive property on my person and not to mention it was 20 degrees outside. A second man approached me after listening to me explain to the First Gentleman why I felt uncomfortable to stand outside and his behavior that followed was not only shocking but disappointing. This Second employee walked over to mock my concerns & open the door forcibly telling me to get out & that it wasn’t his job to worry about my safety. As the world is already chaotic and losing more real men by the day, the ones who represented this hotel last night should be removed and replaced by real men who put the safety of women first especially within such a dangerous city. As I exited, the same employee verbally assaulted two more women after me who expressed the same safety concerns. What a terrible first experience and what a shame as I had high hopes to do potential business and help bring more revenue to this establishment that I will happily never return to.

This place was absolutely perfect for my boyfriend and I’s first trip as a couple to the city! The hotel has a boutique feel and the ambience is amazing. There are four bars built into the property that we loved and the price is amazing for the location. We also had a last minute emergency and needed to stay an additional night prior to our check in time, and Rudy, one of the front desk associates/managers, was more than accommodating and was able to get us our room one night early at the same rate I had originally purchased it for. The only thing I will say is that the rooms are definitely small, but this was not an issue for us as we really only needed the room to sleep. We’d definitely stay here again :)
