6.0 Okay
Smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in. Two double beds, but the smallest. I wanted my adult son to stay with us, but the beds were so small my husband and I really couldn’t share one, so my son stayed overnight at his friend’s apartment
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:met some cool people
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:Super friendly staff a little gym with the most amazing views
8.5 Very good
Pros:The rooms are spartan and relatively small, but very well designed. Views are good. Common areas and lounges are top notch to socialize and do work
7.4 Good
Pros:Great location. Overall very fancy/swanky.
Cons:The UX design needs improvement throughout the hotel. You check in on an iPad but the lobby is nearly pitch black so it’s impossible to see where to swipe your own credit card. The “create your own room key” technique is not intuitive. The bar has six doors but only one of them opens, and no signage to indicate which one. There were more odd things but those stood out.
