              The decor in the hotel was very nice, modern and simple. I liked the fact that it was all white giving it a comforting cotton feel

              There is only one very small restuarant in the hotel. Also the location isnt that great unless you have a conference.

              Location was good.

              Staff was fair at best. Concierge was not on duty at any time when I went to the desk. I could not reach anyone live on the phone.

              Every person on the staff with whom we dealt was friendly and helpful and efficient. The room and the whole hotel was beautiful, well-maintained, and clean. The bar was nice and the drinks were good. We had a nice view. The room was quiet. The elevators came quickly. We got excellent restaurant recommendations. The beds were extremely comfortable. We liked just about everything.

              Funky, boutique style hotel. Tenth floor rooms and bathrooms are decent size. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

              $38 a night for parking is a bit much, even for a downtown hotel.

              Great view from room -- facing the front. Great food -- room service. Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful hotel.

              The candy from the mini bar must have been from the 1980's -- it was rancid. Disappointed that they didn't refresh the bar with non-expired food. Found a long hair on the coffee machine. Not a lot of bathroom amenities.

              Location and staff

              The breakfast was terrible. Synthetic orange juice. Watered down maple syrup inedible French toast. Plastic cups in bathroom no shower cap. No slippers. No turndown service

              The room, location, and overall ambience of the hotel was wonderful. In my estimation, we got a very good deal on this hotel through Booked.net.

              The downside was how expensive the restaurant and bar area were. From my brief experience it was about the costliest place to get a coffee, drink, and food in the city. If you stay here, just be prepared to wander down the street for these things.
