    Tiny room, AC didn't work, bathroom door doesn't shut, and the maids yelled up and down the halls in Spanish at 8am... Luxurious...

    This hotel is amazing and mostly due to the staff but the restaurant, pool deck (heated with music) and fab rooms & location. Perfect mix of urban chic and functional. Best bed in the city too!

    The actual hotel is really contemporary and luxurious.. The rooms however were whack. Broken tv, broken blow dryer, bathroom door doesn't shut, etc! Plus $30 "upgrade" for two beds instead of one king
