Being in the city center might appeal to young travelers, but it's definitely not recommended for family trips. Parking is a hassle as it's in the adjacent building's tower, which feels quite unsafe. The rooms are extremely cramped, lacking even a fridge. The beds shown in the pictures take up so much space that there's barely any room to move around. The staff is unfriendly and the customer service is terrible—they even hang up on inquiry calls. The rooftop area is noisy until late at night, making it impossible to sleep, and the soundproofing is ineffective. Additionally, the breakfast times provided didn't match the actual service hours, causing us to miss breakfast on some days. However, when available, the breakfast itself was tasty. They run out of ingredients quickly, leading to unavailable menu items. Overall, this was by far the worst hotel experience I've ever had.

The staff here are very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is quirky and boutiquey. I noticed something new each and every day of my stay. It really is a beautiful hotel. I was in town for work and therefore did not get to explore much. The rooftop bar at night is a MUST! The view was phenomenal. They have a nice drink menu and though the food menu is short they seem to have a dish for everyone. My room was very clean! The bed was super comfy even though it was a platform bed and low to the ground (might be a problem with someone with mobility issues). My co-worker did not have a platform bed in their room. The bathroom was modern and the fixtures in the room were in line with the rest of the hotel decor, quirky and kitschy. I appreciated that they had USB outlets throughout the room. The CONs: The lighting was dim in the room and bathroom which made putting on makeup difficult and the light from the window was blocked by a building. No ice machines but the front desk staff will bring you ice if you request it. No microwave, no refrigerator, no in room coffee machine (coffee is available downstairs for $5 and there is a 7-11 directly across the street).
