Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I loved everything about the hotel! Upon entrance I was greeted and made comfortable. I did have an issue with my room. I called and the issue was immediately resolved. The employees were always offering to help if needed. Very knowledgeable about the city, and providing great insight on where to go. The location is absolutely perfect! Very alive and everything is very accessible.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Room comfort
Bad service, bad customer support, people smoking
This is no way to be called “luxury”. There were people smoking weed and the smell was unbearable! After the complains the admin could not do anything. I was woken up two times due to fire alarm at 2 and 4am as there was weed party! The oficial reply of hotel to my complains was that it was a “toast” someone was preparing at that time! I would never recommend this hotel!
