Pretty great hotel - some issues with service
Comfortable, clean, stay. Main complaint was that the fridge in the room was locked and my sister needed to put her insulin in there. After three attempts to call, get it unlocked, unlocking it remotely, no one ever showed up. We ended up putting her insulin in ice. Just weird that they said they were going to send someone every time and then never came.

Pet-Friendly Couple
Pet-Friendly, unfortunately we were facing a building and not the city view. Breakfast Buffet was amazing. Well-done. The have an Uber/Lyft loading zone which is helpful for the busy city streets.
