A great concept as a hotel. However it is located on a heavily trafficked block and there is zero room to even pull in to unload bags for check in when there is even one car in the driveway. Check-in is overcrowded in the narrow lobby area designated for such and it becomes the worst human traffic jam as others are also using the space to come and go. Absolutely discombobulated. The bathroom light/fan combo sounds like a factory floor in full swing.

Our room was the most disappointing. It looked like it hadn’t been vacuumed in months. Lint was sitting in every crevice around the room and on furniture and our shower drain was plugged and backing up. You could find hair from other people laying around or stuck to pieces of furniture. The hotel smelled like marijuana often. Although that was just from the other guests staying there from weddings. We called down for a crib for our 2 month old. A crib was delivered an hour later with a “fitted” sheet nowhere near fitted on the mattress. Pretty disappointed.

Great place to stay. Staff incredibly friendly and helpful. Coffee and food in the lobby. Valet parking. Parking on street free from 8p - 8a. Two hour parking otherwise. There is a parking garage up the street from the hotel.

Super friendly staff! The drive-through lanes were a disaster though. Abandoned cars (waiting for valet?) in both lanes leading to traffic jam all the way down the street. No luggage carts available.

Fun decor, clean, friendly helpful staff. Due to COVID, dining options in the city were limited. The staff helped us find a place nearby, Saison, that was simply amazing.

Nice facilities. Due to Covid a lot of the amenities were shut down. Not necessarily their fault.
