    I had booked a petite room. It was very small. It was well appointed but no closet. They did upgrade the room to a king bed from twins, but still no closet! The location is perfect for me.

    Very compact, no wasted space. That's attractive and fine for me, but it makes the bathroom we had a little too tiny for ease-- eg, toilet paper roll placed up and back of toilet, very awkward to use; get a shock of cold water until you figure out how to avoid that in the shower; have to learn to be careful that the water spout doesn't cause water to overflow sink just below it.

    The staff was excellent. The restaurant was not completed. The space between the beds and desk was too narrow.
