                            Perfect location close to 6th dining and music scene. Bed was very comfortable and staff was helpful and friendly.

                            Room was a little small. Walls between rooms were thin and you could hear what was going on in the other room.

                            we stayed in one of the new rooms you must start putting plugs for cell phones next to the bed not behind the furniture also when getting out of the shower you need to put towel racks closer you should not have to get out of the shower to go and get your towel thank you
