2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
Room wasn’t very clean. Toilet paper wasn’t replenished, and the toilet took anywhere between 3 and 70 flushes to work. Beds were barely made. If I hadn’t gotten fresh towels, I wouldn’t have known the room was cleaned. The breakfast was great, but the room was very expensive and not very clean or spacious for the price.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
The location of this property was good but the room was extremely cramped (and I've lived in large cities so I understand space constraints that come with urban hotels) and it was difficult to access. There were lots of stairs both to enter the property and to get to the elevators to the rooms. This was very inconvenient with large suitcases. There was also a large construction project going on in front of the hotel that made it difficult to get and Uber or Taxi without walking away from the property. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The location of room in -1 level, the window is facing refuse area, and the room is next to the smoke door, this is very noisy when someone in and out.
