    Service and Staff
    Property condition


    • Liked: Staff & service
    • Disliked: Cleanliness

    The hotel seems to be rather new. Charging $52 a day for parking is outrageous but we had no choice but to pay this as the surrounding area seemed a bit sketchy so we were unsure how safe our car would have been on the street or in a local parking lot. The hotel furnishings are in good condition. The rooftop bar is particularly nice but it would have been better if it offered a larger food menu. It’s the same menu offered at the main floor restaurant which has an extremely limited selection of dishes. The gym is spacious and well-equipped but loud (loud music & people shouting at each other to be heard over the music) and, while the entrance is chilly, the workout area is a bit too warm. Housekeeping staff seemed to be overwhelmed. Our room was cleaned quite late in the day most days (around 4:30-5 pm) and perhaps this is why it was not thoroughly cleaned. Overall, this is a nice property that could be a very good hotel once these wrinkles are ironed out.

    The restaurant was under construction while we were there, but it did not cause any issues. The elevators are very weird. You select your floor outside the elevator, and it tells you which elevator to get on. There is no opportunity to change the floor once you are in the elevator. It works, but it definitely takes some getting used to.
