AAA Inspector Notes
This trendy hotel is in walking distance to nightlife, restaurants, shops and sports venues. A hip vibe resonates throughout the property, which is accented with vibrant color patterns. The lobby is the perfect place to congregate with friends, family and colleagues. It features a bustling bar, offers ample seating areas and overlooks the pool area. Guest rooms mirror that of the lobby in respect to the vibrant décor and funky vibe. Bright hues, platform beds, pillowtop mattresses, flat-panel televisions, 13-foot-tall ceilings and glassed-in showers are highlights of the guest rooms. If fitness is part of your daily routine then you'll find the exercise facility to provide a more than adequate workout. The hotel is housed in what was once home to the Orlando Utilities Commission, which had been so from the 1960s until 2008. The hotel designers even kept the original vault door on the bottom floor, so be sure to get down there to snap a picture of it. Smoke free premises. 118 units. 8 stories, interior corridors. Bath: shower only. Accessibility (Call).

Pros: There is an amazing bar and the girl bartender was great! They also have a great valet system! Great location near Church Street and awesome restaurants!
Cons: The check in area is small. Most of the staff at the check in desk were very knowledgeable and friendly. However, we did have a few encounters with two staff members who were rude and acted like they had better things to do.

Pros: The room was clean, comfortable, and attractive. I liked the body wash and shampoo/conditioner dispensers in the shower. I loved the free bottled water left on the room.
Cons: There was no bar soap left the first day, so I couldn't properly wash my hands. The in-room coffee maker made the expected mediocre cup of coffee and I had to walk down to the Starbucks in the Grand Bohemian to get a decent cup. The shower had pathetic water pressure.
