Awesome experience
Best experience yet. Staff was courteous to say the least. Room was fabulous and cozy for the family. I will be going back very soon.

6/10 Good

Just OK, not great
Location and neighborhood was good with nearby access to metro and some restaurants. The 1 bedroom apartment on the 7th floor offered some decent views, but kitchen was extremely sparsely equipped and the sofa/furniture was not very comfortable nor tasteful in decor. Room cleaning service was missed on day 1 and very basic the 2nd day. Overall just ok, but not great.

By far my favorite place I’ve stayed in a while. Beyond clean and so well designed, the dental & razor kits in the room were a nice touch 24 hour bodega on the corner

Unexpected Stay
Had our flight cancelled and were rebooked until the next day. Made the reservation at 9 PM and were welcomed quickly and efficiently. Very quick check in and had a great view. The room was very nice, clean, and had a great night's rest.

A Great Place to Stay.
We were in town for a weekend and I can't think of a more perfect place to stay. We used this as a home base to see sights around the City that were all easily accessible via a short walk and a quick/easy subway ride away. Also, there are many food and entertainment choices within walking distance. The Hotel staff was friendly, and honest as can be. We left $500.00 in our room and when I called the next day they said they found it and then they mailed it to me! Good people there and never felt uncomfortable or unsafe when out and about the area.
