Very cool vibe at this hotel. On the outside it looks fine, but when you enter the lobby/bar/restaurant area, you're really blown away. Totally neat vibe inside. Very hip and a really good mix of people (gay, straight, multi-ethnic, tourists, and locals - the whole mix). Staff is extremely friendly. About five blocks from the pier, so a tad of a walk, but I had a bike, so that wasn't an issue for me. I would stay there again in a heart beat and highly recommend it.
