The room was clean, modern, but small. Early morning nearby construction made it difficult to sleep past 7:30am. Rooms are only cleaned every second day. Restaurant was excellent!

A few things make what was supposed to be a relaxing weekend to a very stressful one. The top annoying thing was the lack of cleanliness in the rooms. Our carpets looked like they haven’t been washed in a while as they had vomit stains and crusty stuff on them, changed rooms and the new one also had the same issues but a little less. Shower doors had grime and soap residues, and you could tell the areas next to bed dont get vacuumed as they also had dirt under them. Secondly it was very disappointing to know that the 2 restaurants they have pictures of and say ‘it’s on the rooftop’, great quality, etc, are not THEIR restaurants. So if I wanted to go to the rooftop pool or just to see the view, I had to come to their lobby, walk to another set of elevators, and go down another floor to connect to the Otis hotel next door, then ASK the other hotel’s front desk to let us go up. They also dont have their own breakfast, room service. Only good thing was the gym. Lastly but what really ruined the experience, my weekend and did not let me rest, was the very loud and very scary fire alarm going off for an issue w the pool at the hotel next door. We had to evacuate the building at 2am, wait for it to clear a couple hrs, and right as we are falling asleep again it goes off again, called the front desk, they said don’t worry but it was blasting in our ears, and as soon as they turned it off it kept coming back up. Finally was able to sleep by 4:30-5am, so my Sunday was ruined.

I loved the rooftop bar Otopia. There was easy access to both Chick Fil A and Raising Canes across the street. We ate at Acre41 it was just okay.
