The room was much smaller than I was expecting, but that doesn’t bother me when we were just there to sleep. The area is incredible, and so close to amazing restaurants. Everything in the hotel was clean and the decor was amazing. Would definitely stay here again

Such an amazing hotel in a great location. The decor is nice, the rooms are a great size. The room with the city view was especially beautiful, with the balcony. Great shower, soft sheets, honestly one of the best experiences I’ve had!
