Exceptional Excellent Hitel
This hotel was beyond words. We loved it here, wish we could’ve picked it up and took the room home with us. Hopefully the epidemic will be over soon and we can come back and experience the hotel at it’s fullest.

Beautiful Room
I can’t lie, once I walked in the room I was amazed. The room was beautiful. The shower made the room look amazing. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Check in and out was a breeze. I really enjoyed my stay and I’ll be booking again very very soon.

Awesome Hotel and Experience
This was one of the most beautiful modern up to date hotels I’ve stayed in in beautiful downtown. The only issue I had was that I booked a King bed chi y view but upon arriving and checking in i was told the they were all sold out and the only options I had were either a king bed without the view which totally defeats the purpose or two queen beds city view. The choice was obvious. It was explained to me that this was a mistake on end for not updating their system accordingly and that they’ve been working on updating it for a few weeks now. Overall awesome Hotel and great stay! Very accommodating with toiletries as well!

We had little mix up with rooms upon arrival, but staff corrected error immediately and we were in our way to a beautiful room. It was exactly as pictured in photos. The art work around property is quite unique. It was a quick stop on a long trip. I wish I had more time to just look around hotel let alone rest of city. So conveniently located in heart of downtown. I was so pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of locals as well. We will definitely return at some point for a longer visit.

Fantastic hotel!
What a superb experience! Quiet, immaculately clean, cozy bed, convenient location, fantastic shower, funky bells and whistles. Two slight negatives - free WiFi is only for Bonvoy members (in this day and age hotel WiFi should be free and standard) and on morning 1 of 2 I left a note on the door knob asking housekeeping to just make my bed (such a luxury!), nothing else. I came back to all fresh linens, which I really did not want from an environmental aspect. That was annoying, but not enough to give this hotel less than the highest rating.
