8/10 Very Good

Fun for a One Day Trip
Very Eclectic Hotel From the Darth Vader / Spider Man masks on the lights and sex toys in the lobby. Service in the downstairs restaurant/bar was very good. The rooftop restaurant was nice but not very service oriented. The staff kind of gave you what you needed and then would just talk to one another. Food wasn't very good either.

I have stayed here before and was travelling with my small dog this time. The staff was incredibly friendly with the dog and were super accommodating.

It was good. It’s in a very urban neighborhood. If inner city scares you, this one is not for you.

4/10 Fair

Breakfast is a joke, overpriced hotel for what you
The breakfast option is a joke. It’s more expensive than all items on the menu except for 1. You only get 3 options of what items to choose from though. Zero substitutions. There is a small window to use this coupon they give you in the morning. If you do not use it, it’s worthless. Save your money and eat a better breakfast somewhere in the neighborhood. I had multiple vouchers left over at my stay and through the final two days asked if I could get a refund or double up or use it for lunch, nothing. Lots of fees that are not clearly communicated. The hotel ends up costing a lot more than you book it for. The food and drink are extremely overpriced. Room was fine, the rest of the hotel however was not worth it. Wouldn’t recommend nor would I stay here again
