Great stay. Clean rooms. Beautiful decor in the rooms and lounge. Restaurant was amazing (pricey, but very tasty). Staff was very friendly. The only downside was the street this hotel is located on. Many homeless on the street corners of this block in particular compared to nearby blocks.

Terrible customer service, and I was given a different room than what I originally paid for. I'll never stay there again, and I should be entitled to a refund.
