I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and slept maybe for a total of 6 hours. Awful experience on the 2nd floor on top of their blaring sound system with their so called "cool and hip" djs.
I called the front desk at 1 am asking them frankly who are they trying to satisfy : their restaurent guests or the hotel guests that paid triple? I'm very confused by their approach, they clearly don't care if I couldn't sleep. And then the front desk person had the guts to offer ear plugs that I needed to pay for!!
The street was also surprisingly noisy even though its pretty far up the main "downtown" area.
I finally changed rooms on my last night but it still left a very bad impression. The decor is just a bit too much and I feel like they're trying too hard.
If you're in that area to party it up, then by all means stay here but if you want to rest- stay at a different hotel.
Oh and it's practically impossible to find this hotel! Even with a GPS I got lost...
