Everything was clean and nice. Amenities are great. Location is awesome. The only problem is noise, walls aren’t sound proof and if you happen to have loud neighbors, you’ll be hearing them all night. I’m not particularly discouraged by that, but if you’re more sensible or need silence in order to sleep, it might be a deal breaker for you. I’d definitely come back.

It was nice to have an apartment style room with dishes, a dish washer, and clothes washer, and dryer. The location was great and within walking distance of everything. The only part that I didn't really like was that the entrance is in an alleyway but it ended up being fine.

No cable tv....rug in bedroom was curled up and we tripped on it a few times. Trash can in bathroom is too small and the basket would not stick to the tile or glass so there was no where to put your shampoo etc....a shelf or a table in the bathroom would have been nice. You have plenty of room

Noise from guests staying above kept us awake for two nights in a row. Called concierge 5 times to deal with noise above, finally they sent a security person to the unit to tell them to be quiet.
