        • The location was great, easy walking to market street, the lobby bar was a nice place to gather and the staff were excellent, front desk was friendly. Bed was extremely comfortable and drinks were expensive. This renovated, upscale contemporary charmer was wonderful, the gym was decent.

          Loud construction makes for unpleasant stay, the service was not very good and the specific room I reserved was not ready I arrived in the evening.

Lobby, bar/restaurat area was lovely, courtyard was very European and charming, service was efficient, rooms were a little cramped except for the one corner room we had. The free wireless was very much appreciated as were the evening happy hour, the hot food serving dishes were waiting to be filled and the eggs were excellent.

          Tired, dirty place and the front desk staff seemed somewhat brusk and aloof.

          An unconscionably bad value and worst customer service ever. Pillows too hard for my tastes, not a great neighborhood and the continental breakfast.
