Staff is always nice and helpful. We had a corner king room. Didn't seem much different than a normal room.

Thank you so much for staying with us! Our corner rooms are a little larger than our standard rooms, and they come with a fold out sofa for extra sleeping space. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Check in was a breeze. Entire staff was friendly and very accommodating. Room was very nice. Beds were luxuriously comfortable with high end linens. Pool was very nice and the view from the rooftop bar were amazing! Definitely stay here again.

Great place, great location. Only wish roof top pool was open. Visited Mother's Day weekend and told not open until Memorial Day. :( Would have been great to even lay by the pool if it was not ready for swimming. Other than that, trip was great!

Loved the roof top bar and the "hip" vibe. The room was contemporary and fresh!
