3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The room was very dated. The tub looked dirty and the finish was coming off. Lighting was poor in the room, with all the lams on it was still a dark room. The sliding glass door to the outside did not operate smoothly, very difficult to open.

We did have a young family next to us. We could hear the baby pretty clearly for its 3AM feeding. No big deal. But was dispersed i could heat them that easily. Like the Roku atv. But easygoing live TV was x spotty like itc could not get a good signal watching the NCAA basketball game. Starf was VERY curious and the place is just super cool with the trains and old building. Room was clean. They still are working covid protocol with cleaning and wnities in the room. Therfore the staff will bringv you extra towels or coffee as needed. Walking distance to acquarium on a nice day..1 mile.. safe area. I would definitely return
