Loved the bar and foyer downstairs, very trendy. Service and check in were excellent. Room was (almost) perfect. I personally prefer a colder room with a hard bed, but I'm being picky now.

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Very nice and functional room for a very fair price. Was a bit noisy as the doors closing make louder noises than most and my neighbors seemed to go in and out all morning. I mentioned this in passing when checking out and the staff could not have been nicer, apologizing and offering me a free breakfast. Would stay again.
