Overall nice room with kitchenette in good location. Staff was friendly and check-in was efficient. We did find the air conditioning loud (had to turn on as the room got stuffy at night); also found the pillows a bit too high for comfort. Regardless, a good value hotel.

Its an old apt building converted into a hotel. Loved the full sized fridge and kitchen amenities. Don't get the suites by the front door, they're loud.
