It definitely tries to be trendy, but it doesn't quite make it. The decor looks like they tried the industrial minimalist look, it didn't work and they slapped a bunch of stripes on everything from the carpeting to the windows.
The room it self was okay. The beds were not very comfortable and the AC unit was loud. The cleaning staff failed to see that someone mistook the safe for a fridge and we found leftover Chinese in there. We were fine with the place until the 6 am Sunday morning fire alarm. To get all the way outside from 15 flights down and not find any hotel staff to tell you where to go, what was happening, or give some sort of "all clear" was unacceptable. People were standing on the sidewalk in the cold for a long time waiting for the one functioning elevator to take you back to the lobby because any stairwell doors locked behind you (not that you could find your way around the block anyway).
The only reason I didn't rate it lower was because the price was reasonable for the location, but the $350/night rate that is posted in the room would be a huge waste of money.
