Excellent location!
Pros: This place was such an excellent choice. The location was PERFECT for walking around the city and getting to the theater district (we went to Tom Petty and Toad the Wet Sprocket). To start, the girl at the front desk was so friendly. I wish I had gotten her name, but she had a beautiful afro. The hotel was beautiful, and the staff was very helpful.
Cons: The next morning, we wanted a real breakfast, not just a coffee shop, and the two girls at the front desk couldn't suggest one place where we could get french toast. Otherwise, everything was great!

Superb location and clean rooms...
Pros: I loved the location, it was very Central and accessible. A lot of shops and restaurant are right around the corner. especially for a tourist like myself. The room was clean and minimalistic, which I like.
Cons: Checking in took longer then expected because the system had crashed that morning. Then I was sent to the wrong room and later I had to ask to change my room because I just didn't like it. Not all the staff at the front desk was particularly helpful. Other then one gentlemen who smiled every morning and listened when I complained about an issue (slow check in!), the rest of the staff was not as receptive and approachable. The part of the world I belong to this is considered unacceptable, at a hotel this expensive the one thing that is guaranteed is an amazing staff!

One of my favorite hotels...
Pros: Stylish upbeat Hôtel with a very nice coffee bar next door.
Cons: The music was so loud in the lobby it was difficult to hear anyone and made the check in process annoying
