I enjoyed my 3 night stay here, but probably would not stay again as I don't think it offers a value greater than other mid-tier hotels in the area. Pros: Great service Beautiful old building with nice rooftop deck Cold AC Nicely furnished room Received an upgrade to a suite, which was spacious with a gorgeous view Very clean Cons: Limited amenities on property, including no breakfast option (just coffee/water in the rooftop deck), which I feel negates savings because breakfast out in the area is quite pricey for even something basic Condition of the furniture and bathroom in the room is just ok, a bit worn Bed was small (full size) TINY safe deposit box that would not fit a laptop or other valuable electronics Noise from Gaslamp was a bit much at night, even on a high floor

My check-in was speedy and easy. Everyone was friendly and efficient. The property and the rooms are very clean. My room was excellent; it was quiet at night - and I had a beautiful view. The location is very walkable, and it’s easy to get an Uber or a taxi. The property is an old building that I think used to be an office building. The lobby is tiny, and there are no amenities in the lobby. Just a little front desk. It’s nice, but it’s a small lobby. Overall, it’s a convenient value hotel in a central location.
