Lovely, modern and comfortable.
Lovely hotel. Very modern and the comfortable. The room was a little warm for October. We could not easily leave windows open to let in cool air because there is a lot of street noise. The area is definitely high on nightlife. The windows when closed provided great sound insulation. Staff was wonderful, especially Anthony the porter who helped us with parking.

Fair 4.0
The room was clean and nice. The receptionist was very condescending and rude when asked about simple questions relating to the room, the WiFi, and other basic questions. The bigger issue is the noise and the A/C. The room was about 80F all night (you can not adjust the temp) and just outside the room is a busy street for college kids who love to play Bluetooth speakers and sing horrible songs while taking selfies until 5am. I think the hotel is a 3/5. The surrounding noise is horrible. I would not stay here again.

There was a neighborhood festival the night of our stay. The speaker for the music was less than 20 yards from our window and the mudic was still going long after midnight. We should have been told when we booked the room.
