Pros: Modern, clean, friendly staff, great location.|Cons: |1. The "view" was a brick wall|2. The fragrance they pump in the building was so strong it gave me a headache. It was especially strong in the hallway it made my eyes water. I mean that level of fragrance is not healthy.|3. There was a utility closet next to our room that was being open and slammed shut at all hours of the night, waking us up as it sounded like someone was opening and slamming our door.||Because of these things, we won't be back.

I can't honestly recommend anyone stay here if they want good value for their money. We recently stayed here and found it uncomfortable. The queen-sized room we had originally booked had a great view but the bathroom door didn't close/lock properly and there was almost zero space around the bed to move. What's worse is that the room was right next to a janitor's closet, and the constant opening and closing of the door kept us awake the entire night. We switched to a king room (for a $70/night upgrade cost) which wasn't much better. The toilet paper holder was barely attached to the wall and the "view" was straight into the wall of the next-door building. Airplay wouldn't connect from our iPhones to the TV in either room. In both rooms we were woken up every morning by housekeeping knocking from 7-9 am even though we put the "do not disturb" tag on the door each night. This was simply frustrating. The lobby had loud music blaring the entire time. The curtains did not properly close in either room so we were woken up as well by the morning sun. The wifi was incredibly slow and kept cutting out (maybe on purpose so they can force you to buy the $20/day "upgraded wifi"). No coffee machines in the room and $5 americanos in the downstairs cafe was highway robbery. All in all we will not stay here again. You can hear everything happening in the hallways from your room because the walls are super thin. I didn't see any of this mentioned in the reviews so I wanted to give others a heads up. We were sleep deprived the entire trip. You can find somewhere better for a lower price, I'm absolutely sure.
