    The hotel room was HUGE! They upgraded us for free to the deluxe room and I was staying with my friends so we had plenty of space to seat, talk and have a few drinks. The best part is the location, amazing restaurants 1-2 min walking distance. The hotel also has a cafe that serves great food.

    Cali is my home town, my parents no longer have a house, they left to the suburbs so I had to choose where to stay, I read several reviews and I decided on this hotel. What a great decision I made, My room was big, great with a lot of light, the hotel is in a very nice place surrounded by bars, shops and restaurants just within 2 blocks, but the best thing about the hotel is the staff, they were very nice and attentive to any request i had, helpful in every way they could.. Thank you very much guys for a great vacation, you made me feel at home..

  • 6.0.Good

    Good location but busy street. Windows not insulated from noise so we did not have a restful stay. Staff was professional, room was clean. What was lacking was a lamp by the bed and the ceiling light were too harsh if you wanted to read in bed.
