Pretty cool considering the availability of music studios yet definitely way too pricey. Even the hostel portion is off the chart price wise. Centrally located , Whole Foods markets, cafe’s and many restaurants around. They implemented breakfast at cool cafe next door but for an additional price! Oh well, overall worthy.

Hotel is in not the best part of the city. Close by hotels are many homeless people. Every day my room was vacuumed and cleaned. They change my towel every day, but they never smell nicely. staff was very friendly front receptionists to the cleaning ladies. This hotel to compare with the other hotels in the area in the same price point was way better than the others.
