My family and I really enjoyed staying here. The service provided by Javier at the front desk and Hero at the entrance were incredible. Hero always had a smile on his face for my mom, my daughter and I, and was always eager to answer any doubts we had. We had a tiny house centipede in the bathroom the first night which scared the f out of my daughter and I, but we killed it and later forgot to tell the staff about it. The view from our 16th floor room was amazing, and while the room was small, it was comfortable for all of us and the beds were also super comfy. Thank you for making our stay great.

The room art was very unique and pleasing. The bathroom was beautiful and spacious. We only had small issues with the room. Firstly, the shower curtains don't completely cover the shower and let water drip onto the floor. We had to put towels to catch all the excess water. The steamer in the room was not the greatest. The reservoir leaks and cannot be left full.
