    Super central (100meters from Powell station) and far from expensive boutique hotel. We got upgraded and had a private bathroom which was much appreciated. Only negative I can mention is that the bed was so so soft that we didn't sleep very well.

    We arrived around 12pm from Melbourne and were able to leave our bags (in a separate room) until our room was ready.Checkout was 11am. I found check ins in the US were either 3pm or 4pm everywhere we went!

    I'm not sure about the laundry facilities. as for a shared bathroom we had a jack and Jill bath but there was no one in the adjoining room. I'm guessing you can request your own bathroom but it'll cost extra
