"Beautiful Hotel"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The building is structured beautifully and is very artistic. I had the room with the memory foam mattress. After all day on planes, I slept extremely well and the quality of the room was relaxing and creative. The only thing out of place during the experience was that the employees did not seem to communicate between each other that I was coming in at 2:30am from Denver and that I was checking out at noon instead of 11am.
