Great hotel! Very chic! Loved the live piano and lthe very hip lounge area. I felt the room needed some remodeling. The details in the room needed some maintenance. I felt the decor, which was tropical, seemed dated as well. The bathroom was micro in size where we couldn’t even keep our toiletries in there. Expedia promised a room upgrade but the hotel didn’t have another room to offer because they said they were fully booked. I might try this hotel if I could get a better room or if they remodeled the room but the room we stayed in would prevent us from coming back again. Last, the breakfast at LT was delicious, staff was wonderful, and if you like music, the art is worth seeing.

Carmen was the best staff/bartender! She took such good care of us. She made amazing espresso martinis! The staff was very friendly. The very loud trash pick up outside our window every single morning and the broken elevator were not ideal when we were trying to just get some much needed rest- so I would ask for a room that may not be effected by these 2 things.
