4/5 Good

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Staff were very friendly and helpful, helped me to check in early. Hotel decoration is interesting, make sure to take a picture with the books near the entrance. Room is clean, I got refunded when I switched to queen room from king room. Room is a little small but has all amenities and is clean. The only thing can improve is the curtain, the curtain is too transparent and made me hard to sleep when sun rises.

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
Room was 1/3rd size of picture, terrible location, Restaurant/Bar on site closed, coffee bar without food all weekend. Only optional linen service. Still charged $29/day "Resort Fee". Why do Expedia reservations always trigger worst "run of house" room? Why would we return?

The style of this hotel is so unique and young. It has a beautiful entrance with a groovy bar and seating area, and you can’t beat the hotel staff either because they are incredible! The rooms are fun and extremely beautiful !
