8/10 Very good

First of I will say the staff here is incredible. The staff is kind and attentive and you cannot beat the hotels location. All the major sites and restaurants are walkable from here. However I would be remiss to not warn future visitors on how thin the walls are. Every morning we were woken up by the voices in the hallway, people’s alarm clocks and hearing people use the restroom. We had to ask to change rooms because we could hear literally everything happening in our neighbors restroom. It was a lesson learned that you get what you pay for. The great staff, rooftop and location made up for it but I wish more reviews shared truly how thin the walls are.

4/10 Fair

We stayed here before and were very pleased on our first visit. HOWEVER, this time, we were put in a room that was extremely cramped (our friends were also in a very cramped room) with no space to even put our luggage. The staff at the front desk were not helpful and when the people ahead of us registered, they got in without question. We, on the other hand were told to wait and several phone calls were made before we were allowed to even begin the registration process. We had three people in our crowded room and had to beg for the third bath towel, which came only after several phone calls were made. The food was mediocre at best. We will not stay here a third time and the friends we traveled with agreed that they wouldn't stay here again either. They had a lot of problems with excessive noise, which we didn't have because we were tucked back in a closet on the back wall.
