Prime locationGood location, nice staff, however, hotel needs some renovations. The top of the Mark is highly recommend it. In my opinion, the staff can improve the service; it was good but not excellent

Central hotel with cool lobbyNo major complaints here. They have a weird system of charging a daily $28 service fee then comping $10 back for food and beverage. The other is $18 ostensibly for internet use per day which is rather old fashioned.

Nice boutique hotelOverall, it was fun and great ! Good priced breakfast in cute basement venue. Well decorated. Room are of decent size but beds were too soft. I love the vintage elevator and the bedroom views. Could use more pressure in shower! A little pricy for what it is...
