          gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an

          that seem to light up the streets day and night. The

          The hotel website indicates that the prestige room category has a better location/view than the superior category, but I noticed that someone had asked about a balcony and they were advised to book either a superior room or a suite. I guess i'm asking is the prestige category a nicer room(or location) than the superior, do the prestige category rooms have balconies?
