I asked for room service and was told no. I asked for garbage bags to clean my own room… 5 times! In 4 days… never received them. There was constant work being done. The pictures I had screen shot were not what my room looked like but front desk just said this is your room. The windows were so filthy you couldn’t see out them. The coffee was nasty. The pool and area was very dirty. This is not the hotel I booked. Very disappointing.

This hotel was decent for the stay me and my husband had. We mostly went out in town the majority of the day so it was nice and simple for the occasion. I had a full kitchen and living room area. The bedrooms were full of USB ports on the table of each side of the bed, which was also nice for charging multiple devices at once. The TV’s are smart TV’s. So it had a pretty good, basic- modern setup. Cleanliness was good. The power on the whole block went out for 1 night which sucked but it was no fault of the hotel. Overall, I would give it a 3.5-4 stars out of 5 for a place you’ll be only sleeping in at night.

Check-in staff super accommodating, friendly & courteous. Check out process was seamless. Everything in our room was in order. Last day the shower backed up and there were hairs coming up from the drain. But it was the last day so it was not a big deal.

Property had just been recently renovated within the past month so everything looked and smelled nice! Staff couldn't have been nicer, and the location in the Warehouse District was only a couple of blocks away from the WW II Museum which is the main reason we were there.
