Some find this boutique hotel over the top since it is decked out in a retro 1960s theme. To illustrate this point, leopard-print robes have replaced the traditional white fluffy robe available in most hotels. However, the Pop Art rooms and the bar do attract loyalists who find this offering a fun choice.
