Adorable hotel in an awesome location

They charge an extra daily fee that you don’t really receive anything for. They state they give you a bottle of water on check in with some of this fee, but they didn’t even do that. I mentioned at checkout that I did not get water and they gave me one then. Also only hot beverage in the room was coffee, which I do not drink and there were no water glasses.

In-room espresso machine
Great location! Attended a conference in the adjacent hotel and saved a bundle by not staying in the conference hotel across the street. Everything is nice and new and works. The service was very attentive and there's an in-room espresso machine.

Exceptional 10.0
Completely remodeled! Beautiful space. Only drawback is if you're staying on a Friday or Saturday evening you will hear the Sky Bar music. It didn't bother me but I can see how it would others.
