2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The servicing of the rooms was irregular, the AC didn't work properly (I have had this issue at this hotel before), many items were not available from the breakfast menu that was paid in advance, and the indoor mask mandate was simply not enforced- especially in the elevator which leads to the rooftop taco bar, La Neta.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The rooftop bar is fun, had an amazing view, and really hops at night. Also, the food was delicious. The room isn't much to speak of, but it was adequate, and the bathroom was fine. This place markets to a much younger crowd; I'm older, but had a great time people watching. The location is awesome, and the price was fantastic. It is no Marriott, but that isn't their thing. I would stay there again.
