It wasn't quite great, but really good
This is a really interesting hotel, a beautiful and artful lobby with a lot of geometric and natural shapes and textures, in a great location. The room was very modern and dark, and would have been more enjoyable if it didn't smell kind of musty. We went to the outdoor pool in the later evening and it was overrun by many very loud and obnoxious people, so that didn't work well. And the $50 parking was a surprise, as was the extra charge from the hotel (over what was promised on hotels.com). That said, the breakfast buffet, which was included in the price of the room was fantastic in a super cool restaurant room.

Not bad
Room was ok, bathroom was awesome. View sucked on the 8th floor and the windows hadn't been cleaned on the outside in what seemed like a long time (further reducing what view we had). Also be sure to check the windows as the bottom part opens and ours weren't locked when we got there. Overall I would stay here again if just there mainly to see the city but if spending any time in the room would look around more for a different hotel.
