Highs + Lows

  • I’m pretty sure we had the best room in the hotel, with a private rooftop terrace perfect for room-serviced mornings.

  • The staff was amazing. The concierge even made charging my iPhone feel like a regal experience.

  • The common areas are great, with a drawing room-style meeting area, an outdoor courtyard, and a massive lobby.

  • There was a flatscreen TV above the bathtub—watching the election play out has never felt so soothing.

  • The location couldn’t be better.

  • Some areas of the hotel felt overdesigned – I’m a fan of less is more, so it’s all about personal preference
