This was such a cool hotel! My partner and I stayed for one night and we were so impressed! It’s in a very cool part of town with tons of restaurants near by. The room felt like an apartment rather than a hotel room. There was a record player in the room with a nice selection of records to choose from. There was a little cocktail bar downstairs that severed a nice selection of drinks and food. The staff was all super helpful and attentive. We enjoyed the free and delicious breakfast of pastries and sandwiches in the morning. My partner and I forgot a few things after we checked out and the staff was so helpful in getting them back! Overall, this hotel was great and we would absolutely book here again!
