        Absolutely recommended for all it has to offer! Professional staff, clean, great safe location in the city and surprisingly quiet considering there's a bar lounge on the rooftop that's serves both guests and non-guests. Definitely go ahead for a mini bae-cation shot-left within the city, my bf and I absolutely loved it!
