Overall not a very good experience despite expectations based on reviews on tripadvisor. Reservation was totally wrong by the time I arrived, the price was misquoted, number of days was wrong, and the room type was incorrect. Didn't get an email confirmation because the guy who took my reservation kept getting my email address wrong (despite 3 corrections over the phone). I was told we'd get a queen bed but it was a small double in the end, the room was a shoebox, we could barely get around the bed without bumping into the furniture, over a noisy street with nothing noteworthy or "artsy" at all about the room. The sheets had dried bloodstains on them, the bathroom wasn't the cleanest, and when we went to check out, we were only then told (and quite rudely) that we had to pay for parking across the road. The room also has this bizarre slatted window thing above the door, which lets light flood into the room from the hallway with no way to block it off, so the room was very bright all night - not helpful for a sensitive sleeper. I found the staff were absentminded and for a total bill of $250 we could stay at a 5 star hotel downtown for very little extra and with much more space and better service, so we just left early and decided to cancel our extra nights. I travel extensively for work globally (~100-150 nights a year) so have plenty to compare it to, and would not recommend staying here for the price - it is vastly overpriced for what you get.
