The beds are so low to the ground - they are perfect for a toddler. For a grown adult- extremely uncomfortable. The “we did it ourselves” look of all the room custom woodwork looks like a college project. Lighting in the room is by far one of the worst features along with the bedside tables which are about 8” off the ground! Try looking for the bedside light in the middle of the night and running your hands up and down the nasty cable to find the toggle on/off switch. I have never the wood chair for the “desk” is so hard and uncomfortable- don’t plan on sitting for more than 5 minutes. This hallway carpets are filthy and the whole place feels more like a dorm than an urban chic hotel.

Great location and very clean. The room layout is a bit strange with the sink not in the bathroom. Strange.

A lot of very nice things. However, lacquered plywood for counters in the rooms, pegboard for closet doors. No coffee pot in the room and no coffee service until 6:30. It feels like an effort to be cheap masquerading as eccentric.
