Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Loved the historic area vibe. Right on street, but still quiet at night. Propery has updated facilities and everything was super clean.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
White noise machine in bedroom was great. Clean and spacious, great location. Did give us a pack n play to use for our daughter. Didn’t provide a sheet for the pack n play though. Electronic key pad to check into the room seem to not be functioning exactly properly, but we always got in and out okay. No full length mirror, and bathroom door doesn’t open all the way (hits the vanity) so can’t even stand back and see yourself.

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Sonder did not allow us to check out early, we could not get refunded when we notified them that the place was not fit to stay in, extremely poor ventilation, dishwasher released a burnt plastic smell into the apartment, non-responsive customer service, and crowded space not as made apparent in online photos.
