I LOVE this hotel. Great location, amazing staff (thank you, Kim!), boutique, slightly quirky, like having your own room in a house full of friendly strangers who become friends. 24-hour open bar with coffee, drinks, snacks... great breakfast, classy minibar in room (old fashioned decanters with gin, whisky, and cognac, plus a nespresso), and near everything. And everything included with... More
