Be aware that there is a mandatory "additional fee" that is hidden in the small print. Even if you do not take advantage of any of the services offered and "covered" by this fee, you will be charged extra.

Was looking for a little more "historic" flavor to the hotel. Remodel took away that aspect.

The staff was kind and efficient. The room was quite small and there was nowhere to put my things except the floor and one small table. I felt like I was tripping over my suitcase and purse the entire time I was in the room. The bathroom was ridiculously small and the shower was so small it was almost unusable. Also, the shower curtain was too short so the water from the shower would flood the bathroom and there was no place to set anything in the bathroom either.

Location was close to T and within walking distance to tons of things and restaurants. Restaurant staff was not very accommodating at first, but warmed up a bit - overall staff was friendly n- concierge and front desk were awesome.
