Amazing location and value. Diner and roof top bar were fabulous. Bed was super comfortable. Complimentary toiletries were high quality and the Pid Squad helped me out with complimentary hairspray when I realized I forgot mine. Perfect all around.

The staff were outstanding The price for the room one would think the room would have been bigger and no microwave or small refrigerator in the room. For the price one could get a much better room just around the corner
