I liked the art work and the lobby and the desk staff. I didn’t like the dark hallways and the confusing coffee machine and location in the room. Coffee and creamer were not replenished daily, We had to ask at the desk for these items and a bag of ice.

The hotel was very nice and clean but i wish there was a fridge in the room. I dealt with 3 front desk workers 1 was very nice 1 was decently nice but the last 1 at check out was kind of rude and dismissive. She couldn't give me a printed copy of my receipt but promised i would get an email receipt in 5-10 minutes its been 2 days and i still havent received my receipt. I probably wont be returning. Also its 100 for incidentals per night, not per stay. There are no vending machines and no convince shop items, if you need anything you have to walk 3 blocks to get something.

Just wish I knew the art was being changed out and that many galleries were closed.
