I liked the design on the common areas downstairs. There were some interesting touches like the antique 70s furniture and the way the books in the library were organized into sections by emotion. On the 6th floor, the corridor carpeting was horrible and paychedelic and the corridors maze-like and claustrophobic. They need to improve. A different carpet and better lighting and art and overall more expensive finishes and recessed lights. It looks like a ferry now, not like a high end brutalist building.
The mattresses were good. And the hotel was soundproof between rooms and to the busy roads outside.
But the baths were sub par in our uniy #618 a double. The lime green faucets / taps in the bath needed to be replaced. It was impossible to get cold water. Our room had no overhead shower, only a flimsy handheld shower with maybe 20 open holes in it and no pressure. And the bar was installed low and not good for tall people.The extra powder room was welcome but there was no soundproofing in any of the bathrooms and the powder room had no sink to wash hands. I realize that this may be because it had been built for wheelchair access, but still. Not nice to have to touch handles etc and wait for the bath to be free before being able to wash hands.
No free bottled water was provided for the guests on arrival only tiny bottles in the minibar for purchase. I would expect free water every day in this price range.
