Check in and overall service, to include the valets, was very good. The lobby and breakfast area were bright, the décor a bit funky. The low chairs were not comfortable. We understood this was a "trendy" place when we made reservations, and we have stayed in some cool places. But our room was not comfortable. The two elevators were quite slow, and since we were only on the 2nd floor we asked where the stairs were. The front desk said they only use the stairs in "emergencies". We waited for the slow elevator. The first time we left our room, we found and used the stairs and they were pretty trashy. Our room felt like it was a basement room--the old high windows, the inadequate lighting, and the dark décor (blacks, grays, and metal) were too "urban" for us. The furniture/decor was uncomfortable and cheap--the desk drawers rolled out on their own, the dark finish showed plenty of "battle scars". Did not like the bathroom and the frosted doors did not shut all the way. The only mirror was in the bathroom, which made it take longer for both of us to get ready at the same time--especially if someone had to use the blow dryer. The pillows all seemed the same, no selection. The room did have robes, a coffee maker, and a small refrig--all which we used. During the day, we used the Level 8 area to read because our room was too dark. This is the smoking area for the hotel, so you can smell smoke on the sofas. Happy Hour was a good deal and so was the view.
