Great rooms
It was a perfect location for our large group with large sitting rooms available just off the bedrooms. The staff was so accommodating even at 3AM.

It's a very old building that they've made renovations to. Very cool dip-in like hotel room and cool hall ways honestly I've never stayed at a hotel like this. In the evening they just have ALOT going in in the lobby by the elevators cause it's also a bar-club thing right there by the elevators and it's a very tall building as well so hence long waits for elevator ride. And I thought it'd be more walkable distance to my concert venue but it was a 15-20 minute can ride. So that's my own fault I guess. One last thing. When u book a room here you will have to pay for parking. Whether it be by hotel valet (67) nightly or on the street unknown price but runs risk of tow if you don't may meter on time but now there is an app on phone for that. And then around the corner there's the ambassador house parking and it says on the sign hotel guests are welcome (that came out to 40 bucks over night.)
