Untrustworthy valet
Don't use Valet. Stole gift cards worth over $100 from car. If so, make sure nothing is left inside car.

Great hotel, great location, amazing price.
Fantastic hotel and great location; my only recommendation is that the doormen have a little more training. On multiple occasions we left the hotel/came back and they would be standing outside, see us coming, but not open the door. They weren't helpful upon checkout either. Again, truly great reception staff, cleaning staff was attentive and the room was absolutely spectacular, but the doormen could use a little help! Would definitely stay again.
