Not a good stay.
Hotel rooms are extremely small. We stay at 2 guests room with bathrooms included. Well the bed was a full size bed stick to a wall. Almost a corner. Very uncomfortable. You can no move free at the room at least the other person is seating or laying in bed. Shower has some black mold at corner. Room also was a little smelly. Not a got experience at all. There is not any place at the hotel for to grab a glass of water or even ice. The positive side was the personal. Friendly and attentive.

Loved it!
Loved staying here. I was concerned this would be too much like a hostel, but it was not at all. It was a cute, warm and welcoming hotel, but the rooms were small (as expected). All other features were like a traditional hotel. Customer service was top-notch - kind, fast and willing to help us with any hiccups. The rooftop deck sells this place on it's own. Only critique is that the walls are on the thin side, but nothing too disruptive.

Its fine, a place to sleep.
Its a place to stay. We found the shared bathrooms preferable to our private bathroom (tiny, door didnt provide full privacy and did not latch). Bed was comfortable enough, but the flat surfaces were very dusty like they hadnt been cleaned in a while. It was reasonably quiet given the number of guests, the roof deck was nice

Eeek!
Finding it was a bit tough, lobby was very nice, hallways were so dark it was scary. The rooms were very tiny and the shared bathrooms were a joke. BUT...the location was convenient and at $272 for one night, it was best i could get.
