Stay away from the Study.
I will not stay here again. The front desk staff member working on 11/28 at 6:40am was aggressive, rude, and unprofessional. I called to ask about a late checkout and she not only tried to charge me $99 for a checkout at 1pm, she hung up on me when I asked for her name. Terrible customer service.
