Nice hotel but very small rooms.
The views from the top floor bar and restaurant were wonderful. The room was small, with barely a foot from the foot of the bed and the wall. With the TV placed on that wall it made it rather awkward to move around the bed. The refrigerator was stuffed with mini-bar items and had little to no room for any quest items. I guess you could call it functional but cramped.

Friendly & very helpful staff. The room is great and spacious, the only slight issue is that the room was so hot in the middle of the night, the air conditioning was atomically turned off. We would recommend others to stay there! Thank you :)

Funky Hotel Stay
The Dean was ideal for our couple getaway! It has a retro but also modern style which we loved. The hotel was super funky overall. Amenities were fantastic, we loved the pool where there was an option to order drinks with the press of a button! Room was squeaky clean and offered a munchy wall. The only two downfall were that the bed was two twins instead of a double and kept separating every now and then and the staff at Sophie’s rooftop bar weren’t very nice. I would recommend for a couple getaway!
