                                  Satisfied with good concierge service and overall staff. Appreciated the daring designs (room and lobby), although the printed flowers in the corridor were a bit tacky.

                                  Was disappointed by lack of free internet service in the business room.

                                  The drop-off service by the accura cars.

                                  Would have preferred hot water boiler and free wifi in the room.

                                  The room is very small, not worth the money but the hotel was very nice!

                                  The is no wlan in the hotelrooms, only in Lobby and there is no official computer you can use, only a business center where you have to pay for Web

                                  Location near Lyric Opera, near expressway

                                  Cold Room temp and lobby all cold. In Nov ac still on. and staff could not change or deal with it. They did try to deal with what they could, E.G. brought hot tea, sent maintenance to reset thermostat, (no affect), and adjusted price, but the glo was off the stay by that point.

                                  As always, as a w, great design.

                                  Lobby entrance to dark and congested to easily get to reception when arriving.

                                  Size of room and value for money spent not on par with other options; no swimming pool or sauna, no bar/lounge at this location.

                                  I love how nice and clean the room was. The staff were so nice and accomodating too. The hotel is located right in the heart of Downtown and you were near everything. I had lost my daughter in a car accident last year and have had such a hard time with that, I have been needing to get away because I was just so overwhelmed and this hotel stay made such a difference in my life. I thank all the hotel staff for their kindness and for being so accomodating in every request that I have.

                                  The only things I didn't like about the hotel is that it did't have a couple of things 1) Complimentary breakfast; 2) No free w-fi in your room, only in the lobby and no coffee/tea maker in the room, other than that, it was a wonderful stay and I plan to come back. The room was so nice and the quote on the wall was just amazing, I'm gonna make something just like that to put on my wall at home cause it was so inspiring.

                                  Very pleasant decor, not too boutique!

                                  Located in banking area of city so nightlife/restaurants after 5pm limited in nearby area.

                                  The staff that worked the front/taxi area. They were not helpful

                                  All the bar and reception staff is really friendly. Modern for a short weekend/city trip, but not more.

                                  The hotel it self is very dark inside, if you are going to spend a lot of time inside I would not recommend the hotel, also the restaurant selection is not great with some of the food I had not being good at all. Not even chips tasted nice due to old oil. Corridors around the hotel are slightly dated but the rooms are okay/modern!
