    The area is the best part if the hotel. Staff was extremely friendly. Rooms could use a little upkeep - wallpaper coming off the walls, furniture damaged looking. Overall a great stay though!

    After a menu revamp, this spot comes correct with a full-on burger bar. Check out the bacon jam topped Helix or the brisket chili & onion ring Texan. Also available on top: a fried egg & crab dip. Read more

    This hotel is chic and pet friendly. The room are mostly different in deco and can be request the theme. All staff are very helpful. Prices are reasonable consider in the heart of the city downtown.

    Don't ever bring a date or anyone you're trying to impress. Brothel-curtains at the entrance and the euro trash decor gives it a mod Hostel feel. I'm sure HH is great but horrible for out-of-towners

    Mod lobby brings your right to the point. Small yet nifty bar lends it personality to the thematic evil lair lines. Good service, full cocktail list. Tiny TVs. ** #mayormorris

    I didn't get hot water in the shower both days I was there. I was assured that the issue was solved after the first time and it wasn't. They took off $20 from the bill but I wouldn't stay here again

    The air conditioning is awful, and they pre-authorize $100 PER NIGHT on your card without disclosing it. We called their operator for over an hour no answer! Just trying to set a wake up call!

    Nice hotel. Very spacious rooms. The rooms could stand a deep cleaning on the carpets and a few upgrades in the bathrooms. Not the best but far from the worst.
