Ok in a pinch.
Right in the middle of all the action in Little Italy. Kinda loud. Quiets down around midnight. Rooms smelled funny, like mold trying to be covered up with some sort of fragrance spray. Carpets worn a little too much. Noticed dead cockroaches all over the grounds. Front desk staff really nice.

Ok if comfort isn’t important
Super hard beds and ac didn’t work. Room key kept demagnetizing.

Add $20 per night to whatever rate you see advertised for this property! This is a fee which is added on upon your arrival for you to allowed to park in the property's garage that you may not be aware of. It's hidden and with out you or me, they would have no need for parking spaces. This is a deceptive practice to say the least and is pretty much lying in order to appear closer to the top of the "lowest price" sorting. I don't know that I would stay here again. It is a trendy property, meaning a lot style with what I would term substance. If you don't mind the noises of downtown, such as garbage trucks dumping trash, then this might be for you; not me - I like to relax on my vacation and sleep. The parking garage is small and difficult to navigate. My bathroom sink had no hot water and would not drain. The shower is a "trendy" open shower which lets water splatter all over the marble bathroom floor. While I realize that everyone claims "to work hard for business" and wants the highest and best reviews and everyone wants to "make money" Well, the only people who "make money" work in a mint and my business has to be EARNED and that includes not surprising me with hidden fees. If you prefer style over substance then this is the place for you. It was not restful.

Bad hotel and it is not worthy the stay.
I always get my rooms at and I am very unhappy with this hotel. No air conditioners in the room and the staff had more room available and didn’t offered us another room. Had to park 3 blocks from the hotel and pay parking lot. I am very unhappy wirh the service of this hotel.
