There's a lot to recommend about DeWitt Place: good location, well-designed small apartments, quiet street. But I was traveling with my daughter and we needed the sofa bed, advertised as a second bed. It was AWFUL! It's a folding vinyl thing that didn't even open flat. It was impossible to sleep in the middle of it--a deep ditch with a metal bar--and the two sides were each about 22" wide, sloped to the side, and graced with another metal cross-bar cutting into your ribs. THIS IS NOT A SOFA BED; IT IS AN INSTRUMENT OF TORTURE. Sleeping on the floor would have been far more comfortable, but there was not even one extra blanket to spread on the floor.
Also: This was Memorial Day weekend, over 85 degrees, crowded beaches--and NO AIR CONDITIONER OR WINDOW FANS! There were other smaller flaws--no ventilation of any kind in the bathroom (is this legal?); no plug for the bathtub; no one at the front desk before 8 AM. But I could have forgiven it all if not for The Rack, a.k.a. sofa bed. (We DID indicate in a note in our reservation that we needed this bed! Also, it was not made up for us--we just found some sheets stuffed on a closet shelf. Luckily it was too hot to need blankets, as there were none.)
