Convenient to everything. Love visiting the dog down stairs. Clean and comfortable. Walking distance to the theater district

Good but not great
It’s a lovely hotel but I was surprised they don’t have bathrobes, slippers, and other toiletries I’ve come to expect in 5 star hotels.
Jessica, us1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Small but lovely room. Appears to be recently renovated. The lobby is beautiful and staff super friendly. The “resort fee” is silly but at least (Unlike other hotels) they give you a credit in the restaurant. Elevators and rugs in hallways could use a refresh!

Fantastic stay and fantastic location! Vania the waitress in Oak Restaurant is extra special. Matthew in room service also extra special

Good 6.0
hidden costs and room not warm in winter
Hotel charged US$30 per day Urban Experience fee (internet, etc.) but give a one time US$25 Credit for F&B. Order an overpriced US$29 breakfast room service and there was US$8 delivery charge. Room heater not warm enough and the window in toilet got cold draft seeping in. Tried once in this hotel and that's it.

Poor 2.0
stay away
The entire stay was a disaster. We were first allocated a room on the 1st floor - with a wedding reception taking place that night (or next night). We then asked to be changed and were allocated an internal room - which clearly was not what we wanted. We were then given another room - directly next to screaming children. I asked to be changed and was told that I was going to the lounge floor - but that unlike the other guests, I could not use the lounge. I didn’t want to use the lounge but in light of the inconveniences, I found this to be cheap, petty and ugly (btw - I gladly ended up spending over $600 at the hotel restaurant). Finally, we were given room 361 - only to be next to a barking dog. The experience was terrible. Kelly the floor manager was rude and arrogant - non accommodative and aloof. I will be writing a terrible review about this hotel on multiple hotel sites - and I have never taken the time to do so.

Good hotel but needs room upgrade
The lobby of the hotel is very beautiful. The restaurant food is very tasty. All the people who work at the hotel are very polite, courteous and professional. The room decor was okay and a little gloomy for my taste. The bed was comfortable but the furniture needs an upgrade. The sink in the bathroom was leaking and the bathtub seemed clogged.

Fabulous all around!! Beautiful and iconic hotel and all the staff are very attentive.
