    My major complaint was The Wi-Fi only worked on the main floor and if you got a room on the first floor. The bathroom was not always clean. Bit the location was great. It was ok for the night.

    the location is great. near subway. building could be really cool it needs work. rooms are like in need of TLC. lobby is in by entrance and is like sparse and small. could be so much better with some little effort. take lobby to one floor or something . the hallways are interesting but sad it needs some work. I had to sleep with a open hole next to ac, with cold air one night and a lot of heat other night. some people at front desk are cool. has elevator and some laundry... no lockers

    Poor communication with third party booking. Not responsive to emails . Not responsive to phone calls - phone rings with no answer. After 5 calls with no live person and finally an answer machine allows a message to be left - no one calls back. The staff person states the owner has access to all the communications 🤷‍♀️ All this means nothing when they deny your booking exists in their system and they don’t give you a room- YES turn you away at night in a snow storm! Don’t always go with $$

    My partner and I stayed one night here. There are extremely high hidden taxes which added another 30% onto our already overpriced room. When we arrived the staff had already given our room away so they moved us into a different room which had bunk beds. They still charged us the same amount for a worse room. We had to complain to get the money back. The communal bathroom had no soap in it. While the whole place smelled like disinfectant, it didn’t look necessarily clean.
