This is not a nice hotel. The elevator smelled like piss. The first room they gave me was very small and had a musty smell. Something like what you'd expect in a Motel 6. The second room they gave me was decent but not worth anything near $1200/night. Just like any room you'd get at most Marriott properties for $3-400/night. The lobby bar and the roomtop restaurant were nice.
