Great place, great location! Cool vibes with the lounge, games and coffee bar. Room appointed with necessities but no extras. Queen bed…meh comfy but slept well after day walking around the fantastic Market Square. So happy we found this place. Note: when they say get your parking pass on your car asap, they mean it. We waited for about an hour for a downpour to end when we arrived to go back outside with it and be on our way to Market Square, only to find a $70 ticket on our window. Not the greatest welcome, but the rest of the time was fabulous.

Everything is perfect! The only thing is in the morning there's no stock of creamers, cups, etc by the coffee station and there's nobody by the reception to help.

My first experience at this hotel, stayed for one night. Check in was awkward, frustrating, but once I was able to get in the building, I found the room clean and comfortable. It was more like a hostel, really. I never saw a single staff person. Basically, it is a self-serve lodging option in a wonderful downtown waterfront location.
